Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother in the Case of A Study in Blood
From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother in the Case of a Study in Blood is an American play written and directed by Matt Boatright-Simon, performed at Spotlites (Edinburgh, Scotland) during the Fringe Festival 2016 from 4 to 20 august 2016, starring Matt Boatright-Simon as Tyson Jackson, the half-brother of Sherlock Holmes and Lawrence Werber as an old Watson.
Tyson Jackson is the black, L.A. 'detective consultant', half-brother of Sherlock Holmes, a womaniser and wise-cracking wit. Jackson is brought to London, armed only with a toothbrush, 100 condoms and a Lonely Planet guide, to solve the case of the disappearance of Sherlock Holmes and the death of their father, Professor Holmes. Initially clashing with the stiff upper-lipped male Brits (less so with the women), Jackson uses the same sorts of methods as his brother to solve the mystery.
