Conan Doyle’s detective takes on his final case in 1930s London in this new production from Let Them Call It Mischief. The show is written by Tim Norton and directed by Danny Wainwright, and Sherlockians can catch it at the Pleasance, Islington, from 11th February to 2nd March. The show runs for two hours including one interval.
Holmes’ last triumph is long behind him and, with no challenge to engage his still keen intellect, his fondness of drugs has taken its toll. Watson has resorted to selling stories of old cases to make ends meet as he tries to find a distraction for his friend’s boundless energy. Could one last case repair their fortunes? Could the world’s greatest detective solve ‘the perfect crime’?
Let Them Call It Mischief was founded in 2012 by Danny Wainwright, Flo Buckeridge, Stephanie Hampton and Tessa Gillett. Their previous productions include The Alchemist and The London Cuckolds. Follow them on Twitter @mischieftweets.
