Holmes and Watson

by Jeffery Hatcher

Sherlock Holmes is dead. Or so it is assumed. A number of frauds and fakes have come forward to lay claim to his identity. Follow Dr. Watson as he determines if one of these mad men is the real Sherlock Holmes. It’s not a who-done-it, it’s a who-is-it?
June 4 - June 21

by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker
