Watson and Holmes

This is a Studio production : Not part of the Patron’s Scheme


by Bert Coules

Act One: The Abergavenny Murder
A desperate client arrives at 221B Baker Street, leading to a virtuoso display of observation, deduction and forensic science as Holmes works out exactly who he is and why he came there.


Act Two: The Lions Mane
John Watson is making a rare visit to the detective in his isolated retirement cottage in the country. While Holmes re-enacts the events of a recent mystery, Watson shows his own powers of detection as he discovers not only the truth about an unexplained death but also the dark reason why Holmes turned his back on work, fame and London.


Written by Bert Coules and based on his original radio mystery “The Abergavenny Murder” and his dramatisation of Doyle’s “The Lion’s Mane”, the play is a light hearted but poignant exploration of the famous friendship.’ ‘These are not just detective stories, but stories about a detective. Originally Radio 4 plays this is the first time they will be performed on stage.
