Sherlock Holmes & The West End Horror

by Anthony Dodge and Marcia Milgrom Dodge
A despicable theatre critic has been murdered, and Holmes and Watson are soon visited by George Bernard Shaw, an aspiring Irish playwright who entices Holmes to take the case. As they cross swords with the most famous literary luminaries of the day -- Oscar Wilde, Gilbert & Sullivan, Henry Irving, Bram Stoker, and a young H.G. Wells, Holmes and Watson come face to face with their own celebrity as they pursue the killer in this rollickingly funny whodunit.

NY Newsday

"...a dashingly clever play...expect two hours of sophisticated fun."

Sag Harbor Express

"This Horror's A Beauty... The Dodges are extremely clever playwrights... wonderfully original and fast paced... the most inventive play that has graced the Bay Street stage to date... the words are witty and engaging... cunning and multi-dimensional."

The Independent (New York)

"...wicked, witty fun... superbly conceived and executed... an East End delight!"
