Since last September I have been touring up and down and all around the UK with Blackeyed Theatre in Sherlock Holmes: The Sign of Four. Our version is adapted and directed by Nick Lane, with live music composed by Tristan Parkes and the company. Two of my favourite venues so far are pictured above. The Atkinson in Southport (left) and the Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds (right).
"Crammed full of adventure, romance, comedy and of course one or two rather brilliant deductions, The Sign of Four is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s epic second Sherlock Holmes tale, a breathtaking yarn brought to life in this spectacular new stage adaptation.
When Mary Morstan arrives at 221B, Baker Street to request help with the mystery of her missing father, Holmes takes the case and together with his companion Dr Watson enters a murky world of deception and trickery, unravelling a complex plot involving murder, corruption and stolen jewels."
