Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Suicide Club

WRITTEN BY JEFFREY HATCHER
DIRECTED BY SHAWN ANDREI
RATING: T FOR TEENS – THIS PLAY IS A COMEDIC THRILLER THAT CONTAINS SOME ADULT THEMES WHICH MIGHT GIVE SOME PARENTS PAUSE. THERE IS NO ONLINE VERSION BUT YOU CAN  GET A COPY OF THE SCRIPT HERE.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary detective takes the stage in this exciting mystery by Jeffrey Hatcher. When members of the nation’s elite are found dead across London, the game’s afoot as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson search for answers. Could it be coincidence?  Accident? Or could it have something to do with a mysterious London club which always seems to be on the lookout for new members, but mysteriously never increases it’s membership? We could tell you more, but that wouldn’t be cricket, would it? Match wits with the world’s most famous sleuth as he eliminates the impossible and arrives at the truth–however improbable as it may be.

“Playwright Jeffrey Hatcher takes Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous characters and drops them into a story inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella The Suicide Club to create a thrilling comic mystery. The whodunit mystery comes complete with a wow-I-didn’t-see-that-coming ending.” — Arizona Daily Star

“Hatcher has a winner with SHERLOCK HOLMES. It’s intelligent, clever, teasing, seductively engaging and just plain fun.” — Tucson Weekly

“A darkly comic new take on the archetypal detective.” — Arizona Republic
