From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
Sherlock Holmes and the Vampyres of London is a British play, written and directed by Richard Lloyd, performed by Theatre Workshop Coulsdon at the Coulsdon Community Centre (Coulsdon, UK) from 6 to 14 april 2019, starring Joe Wilson as Sherlock Holmes and John East as Dr. Watson.
London 1887. When the mortal remains of a young aristocrat vanish in the dead of night from Brompton Necropolis, Sherlock Holmes is no sooner asked to investigate than a second mystery presents itself – a beautiful young heiress afflicted by unaccountable night terrors; her vitality slipping away. As these two strange cases resolve themselves into one, Holmes and Watson, are plunged into a hidden London of grave-robbing grotesques, murderous Szgany gypsies, and demonic possession that obscures a diabolical conspiracy to overthrow the Crown itself.
