The Death and Life
In this wryly humorous tale of murder, mystery and the occult, the world's greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes, refuses to leave the stage.
Author Arthur Conan Doyle tires of the intolerably arrogant Sherlock Holmes, and creates arch villain Moriarty to dispose of him. But Doyle's dangerous strategy, combined with his passion for spiritualism, has unexpectedly bizarre dramatic and comic consequences.
After 13 years of world-wide touring with Sherlock Holmes : The Last Act, this new drama see's Roger Llewellyn return as the famous super sleuth for another investigation, a light-hearted fantasy illustrating the battle between an author's intentions and the unprecedented rebellion by his literary creations.
Sherlock Holmes : The Death and Life features atmospheric lighting and a thrilling, original score from RSC composer Simon Slater.
