Aquila Theatre’s The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

The legendary sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, takes the stage in this witty, fast paced production by the acclaimed Aquila Theatre.

The clever Holmes skillfully maneuvers the twisted web of London’s most intriguing cases with his split second deductions revealing intimate and useful details of a person’s life. Sherlock Holmes is a master of disguise and a brilliant actor, as well as a composer and musician-is there anything he can’t do? Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s vivid characters jump from the page weaving a tale of mystery, suspense and intrigue. In addition to Holmes, many of Doyle’s other well known creations are on hand; the trusted sidekick Dr. Watson, Irene Adler, the woman who got away, and the only woman to have won Holmes’s respect, the red-headed mason Jabez Wilson. Doyle, in addition to being a renowned author, was a physician and he infused Holmes with terrific skills in forensic science and logical reasoning.

One hundred and twenty five years after his debut, Sherlock Holmes remains the definitive and most famous detective in world literature. The Aquila Theatre brings it’s energetic and physical style to this new adaptation. With actors drawn from the top British and American stages, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a thrilling and memorable ride.
