Once again the fate of the British Empire lies in the hands of the greatest crime fighting team in literature. Holmes and his faithful friend Watson have until midnight to solve the fiendish Moriarty’s deadly puzzle. Where is the QV2? What is Victoria’s secret? How on earth did Holmes end up on the stage of the Gaiety Music Hall? Who is the mysterious Nightingale of Nuremburg? And why is Watson wearing her dress…?
This delightful new musical from the creators of Chaps!, Dogpark, and They Came From Way Out There will soon be delighting audiences at the intimate Deep Cove Shaw Theatre in North Vancouver.
