“Miss Sherlock Holmes” returns to the stage!

June 11 - July 17


The Winter 2019 issue of The Sherlock Holmes Journal featured Paul Thomas Miller’s enthusiastic review of Miss Sherlock Holmes, a dramatic highlight of the “Summer of Sherlock” festival in Portsmouth.

This trio of short plays, commissioned by Portsmouth’s Conan Doyle Collection and produced by the Lantern Light Theatre Company, had its premiere at The Round Tower.

Sadly, the Covid-19 pandemic meant that plans for a tour in 2020 had to be postponed – but here we are in 2022, and Miss Sherlock Holmes will soon be on the road!

A unique and rarely performed triple bill of three short Sherlock Holmes stage plays by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his contemporaries:

‘The Crown Diamond’ by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
‘The Painful Predicament of Sherlock Holmes’ by William Gillette
‘Christmas Eve’ by S.C. Roberts

Bookended with the story of homeless teen Billie and how she came to live and work with the famous detective.
