The game’s afoot in the regional premiere of ‘Holmes and Watson’ at Stage West in Fort Worth Saturday, June 1, through Sunday, June 30.
Sherlock Holmes is dead. He died in a struggle with his nemesis, Professor Moriarty, as both went over the edge of the cliff at Reichenbach Falls. Or did he? The plot is definitely about to thicken in the 5-week run of Jeffrey Hatcher’s 'Holmes and Watson.'
Three years after the disappearance of Holmes, his loyal assistant Dr. John Watson has been summoned by a Dr. Evans to a remote island asylum (on a dark and stormy night, of course!) to investigate three inmates, all of whom claim to be the great detective. It’s not Watson’s first investigation of this sort, Holmes’s body never having been found, but all previous claimants have turned out to be imposters. Will the same prove true here, or has the real Holmes actually been found, alive? Watson is about to be drawn into a web of intrigue and murder, and the audience will be carried right along with him in this supremely entertaining and surprising mystery.
