Notes from the Director:
In July 2016, the Sudbury Savoyards presented Maid to Order, a farce with disguise as a major focus. We are back this summer with an entirely different kids of show but one that also involves disguise… and much more. Sherlock Holmes is an iconic figure in literature, theater, and movies. This play by Steven Dietz, is based on two of Arthur Conan Doyle’s short stories, A Scandal in Bohemia and The Final Problem.
In it, Holmes has come out of self-imposed retirement to solve what become two interwoven cases. He is reunited with his friend and collaborator, Dr. Watson, and finally meets both his arch nemesis, Professor Moriarty, and the one love of his life, Irene Adler. There are currents and undercurrents as teh tension mounts along with bright flashes of dark energy, full of mystery, adventure, humor, and romance.
