Sherlock Holmes investigates Bury

The world’s greatest detective Sherlock Holmes comes to The Met with The Death and Life on Wednesday 30 April at 8pm.

.

In this intelligent and comical tale of murder, mystery and the occult, we have the pleasure of meeting Sherlock Holmes’ creator, author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Doyle has tired of the intolerably arrogant Sherlock Holmes and has created an arch villain, Moriarty, to dispose of him. But his dangerous strategy combined with a passion for spiritualism has unexpectedly bizarre and dramatic consequences.

 

The character of Sherlock Holmes first appeared in publication in 1887, featuring in four novels and 56 short stories. Known the world over, the character and stories of Holmes have become more prominent in pop-culture in recent years, with two Hollywood feature films starring Robert Downey Junior, the hit BBC series Sherlock and popular US series Elementary.

 

In this one-man show the famous super-sleuth is portrayed by Roger Llewellyn, who has honed his Sherlockian skills touring world-wide for over thirteen years with Sherlock Holmes: The Last Act.

 

Tickets to see Sherlock Holmes: The Death and Life are £12. For more information or to book phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz
