Sherlock Holmes (play 1907-1908)

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

Sherlock Holmes is a French 5-act play, written by William Gillette and Arthur Conan Doyle, adapted by Pierre Decourcelle, directed by Firmin Gémier, performed at the Théâtre Antoine (Paris, France) from 20 december 1907 to 17 may 1908, starring Firmin Gémier as Sherlock Holmes and Mr. Saillard as Dr. Watson.

The play is an adaptation of the William Gillette's play Sherlock Holmes (1899).

After 17 may, Georges Flateau replaced Firmin Gémier for 5 months (18 may - 13 september 1908), see the dedicated page.

There was also a long tour (may 1908-1931) with different casts : see the Georges Zeller Tour (France, Belgium, Tunisia).
