|Sherlock Holmes..The Death and Life|
Wryly humorous tale of murder and mystery at The Tabard Theatre
Arthur Conan Doyle tires of his intolerably arrogant Sherlock Holmes, and creates the malevolent Professor Moriarty to dispose of him. But the author's dangerous strategy, combined with his passion for raising the spirits of the dead, has rather more bizarre and dramatic consequences than he bargains for!
Last year, Mark Makin of 'makin projects' offered to co- produce a second Sherlockian venture; and in association with Guildford's Yvonne Arnaud Theatre and the same creative team, SHERLOCK HOLMES … the Death and Life premiered at Guildford in March 2008 and along with 'the last act! ', tours into the next decade.
