Sherlock Holmes and the Speckled Band (2018)

Sherlock Holmes and the Speckled Band is an Australian play, written by Max Gee and directed by Tom Massey, performed at the Genesian Theatre (Sydney, Australia) from 7 april to 12 may 2018 (preview on 6 april), starring Chris Butel as Sherlock Holmes and Kieran Gilkes as Dr. Watson. 1h45 (20 min interval).

This play is an adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's short story : The Adventure of the Speckled Band (1892).

Julia Stoner tragically dies under mysterious circumstances on the eve of her wedding. A low whistle, a heavy metallic clang. No reason for her death is ever discovered. Her twin sister, Helen, is distraught but life must go on and her own wedding is approaching. And then late at night, she hears a low whistle in the dark... This adaptation remains faithful to the original spine tingling short story from Conan Doyle, despite the presence of Charles Augustus Milverton.
