“Sherlock Holmes: The Sign of Four” – and more Holmesian drama to enjoy at home

With theatres closed and dark across the nation – and beyond – where can we experience quality Sherlockian drama?

At Holmes, of course! (Sorry, that should read, “At home”…)

Don’t miss Blackeyed Theatre’s highly acclaimed production of Sherlock Holmes: The Sign of Four, dramatised by Nick Lane. Original live music, stylish theatricality and magical story-telling combine for an unforgettable theatrical experience. The game’s afoot!

Seen by over 50,000 people in 70 towns and cities across the UK, The Netherlands and China, The Sign of Four is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s epic second Sherlock Holmes tale, a breathtaking yarn brought to life in this spectacular new stage adaptation which premiered in September 2018.

You can watch The Sign Of Four online free of charge via the Blackeyed Theatre YouTube channel at
The show will premiere at 7.30pm on Sunday 5 July and it will be available to view until 11.30pm on Wednesday 15 July.

Sherlock Holmes – A Scandal in Nova Alba by Orlando Pearson:
A live performance featuring Orlando Pearson, Jon Constant and Rhys Turner

Who killed King Duncan at Dunsinane Castle? Was it really the man on whom Shakespeare heaped blame and opprobrium? Or is there another explanation? Sherlock Holmes investigates a case even darker than the Bard’s original, and with many uncomfortable modern-day resonances.

Robert Lloyd Parry is best known for his superb performance of ghost stories, particularly those of M.R. James. He writes:

‘I’ve been livestreaming supernatural tales for the last couple of months on the Nunkie Facebook page and am about to launch a Sherlock Holmes season. At 8pm each Wednesday in June I’ll be doing “The Dying Detective”, “The Creeping Man”, “The Veiled Lodger” and “The Final Problem”. You can see the listings and links to the page here: www.nunkie.co.uk/schedule.’

Having had to postpone the planned tour of their new play, Bert Coules and Tim Marriott have recorded it as an audio drama.

Tim Marriott follows in the footsteps of Michael Williams and Andrew Sachs in Watson: The Final Problem, produced and directed by Bert Coules. You’ll find it on the Smokescreen Productions website at www.smokescreenprods.com.
