An Evening with Sherlock Holmes
A Trio of Mysteries
by Jules Tasca
February 25 - March 26, 2022
The triad of one acts begins with "The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor", the tale of a British aristocrat, Sir Robert, who marries an American millionaire because his fortune has run out. However, on the wedding day, his young wife disappears. Sir Robert calls on Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson to solve the mystery of her disappearance. The second piece, "The Milverton Adventure", pits Holmes and Watson against a nefarious blackmailer, Charles Milverton, who is blackmailing one of Holmes' clients, a woman who wrote several damning letters that could destroy her impending marriage. Holmes plans to burgle Milverton's house and retrieve the letters, but on the night of the burglary, Holmes' and Watson's attempt is interrupted by an unforeseen incident. It is the original concluding play, "The Disappearance of Adam", that makes this evening with Holmes unique. Holmes must solve one of the existential mysteries. With its theme of life and death, the super sleuth must solve the riddle that has puzzled the most brilliant minds in history! How does a person cope with his or her own demise? A not-to-be-missed climax!
This play was directed by Doris Merten & Glenn Dodson and featured Arnold Richie, Adrian Collinson, Janye Anderson, Tony D'Armata, Keith Henson, Darius Hollis, Shirnekwa Dickson, JP Walsh & Alice Rhoades with Marylin Faulkner, Michele Richey & Julie Burks backstage and Leia Spialter in the tech booth.
