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.

From the old warrior Winston Churchill, to Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher and finally David Cameron, the Queen advises her prime ministers on all matters both public and personal. Through these private audiences, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch.
