“Sherlock Holmes, the Death and Life” 26th February 2011 7.00pm doors for 7.30pm
We are delighted to introduce SHERLOCK HOLMES…THE DEATH AND LIFE – directed by Gareth Armstrong
Arthur Conan Doyle tires of ‘his’ intolerably arrogant Sherlock Holmes, and invents arch villain Moriarty to eliminate him. This dangerous scheme, combined with Doyle’s passion for raising the spirits of the dead, has bizarre, dramatic and very unexpected outcomes. A light-hearted and intriguing investigation of the consequences, when fictional characters take on lives and ambitions of their own, quite against the wishes of the author.
‘This is a truly great production: a wonderfully written, beautifully directed play ….. a wonderful thing to behold. At once funny, engaging, and dark; it is the nearest thing to the perfect short play that you will see. And its crowning glory is Roger Llewellyn.’ – Brighton Argus
‘Llewellyn’s performance was luminous, intense and a masterclass in the art of holding an audience spellbound. This is focused, insightful and intelligent theatre, performed with the right degree of passion and conviction and carrying one heck of a punch.’ – South Wales Evening Post
