Sherlock Holmes comes under the magnifying glass at Bloxwich theatre

Don't Go Into The Cellar

Sherlock Holmes is the most famous detective of all.  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s fictional Victorian sleuth is legendary for his icy logic and inimitable powers of deduction, revealed in a series of remarkable stories, which form his literary ‘canon’ as well as being the basis of countless films and television series.

And now Sherlock fans in the Walsall area can see a fascinating and exciting new chapter of the Great Detective’s extraordinary life unfold up close and personal – live on stage at Bookmark Bloxwich Theatre in Elmore Row, Bloxwich on Saturday 24th March!

Stuart Williams of Bloxwich Library Forum said:

“‘Holmes Alone’ is an original play performed by ‘Don’t Go Into The Cellar!’ (pictured above), the UK’s only theatre company staging original adaptations of Victorian ghost and horror stories and Steampunk capers.

“It moves the story of the world’s first consulting detective forward almost to the beginning of the Great War, and sees Sherlock Holmes on the brink of retirement and without Dr Watson (who has had the audacity to get married – again!).

“However, a spate of mysterious deaths calls Holmes to the Sussex Coast, where Holmes must face one of the deadliest foes he has ever encountered…

“Meanwhile, the late Professor Moriarty’s right-hand man, Count Negretto Sylvius, plots to avenge his master’s death by bringing about the downfall of the Baker Street sleuth!”

This is a new Sherlock Holmes story with a twist, from a company with style, panache and a great sense of drama and fun, taking to the stage at the invitation of Bloxwich Library Forum – don’t miss it!
