An original theatrical thriller, of murder, intrigue and danger, arrives at Manchester Opera House next week when Sherlock Holmes embarks on a gripping new case in The Best Kept Secret.
The legendary occupant of 221b Baker Street faces his greatest challenge in a play based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s characters, written by BAFTA nominated Mark Catley.
Playing the renowned sleuth is Jason Durr with Andrew Hall as sidekick Watson, Adrian Lukis as Sherlock’s brother Mycroft, Tanya Franks as the alluring Irene Adler and Victor McGuire as Inspector LeStrade.
Two years after Reichenbach Falls, Holmes has lost his hunger.
Refusing new cases, he’s listless, bankrupt and reduced to selling stories of his past glories. But when his brother is arrested for treason, Holmes is back in action.
From Tuesday to Saturday.
Box office: 0844 871 3018.
