Do the world’s most portrayed literary characters require yet another stage production – let alone four? You be the judge.

Each play skillfully stands on its own merit. Combined, they relate how two men meet as indifferent young men who survive losses, celebrate successes, and eventually become literature’s most enduring partners against crime through the bond of friendship.

Written to be produced with a modicum of scenery and props, each mystery relies upon the audience’s imagination and the talent of a small company of repertory actors spinning the stories seemingly out of thin air.

Audiences have been left spellbound by these productions, which bring to life the world of Holmes and Watson precisely as every reader imagined. I hope you and your audience will be impressed as well.
