Synopsis

An Evening With Sherlock Holmes presents a unique evening of mystery. The triad of one acts begins with The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor (5m., 2w.), the tale of a British aristocrat, Sir Robert, who marries an American millionaire because his family fortune has run out. However, on the wedding day, his young American wife, Hatty Doran, disappears. Sir Robert immediately calls on Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson to uncover the mystery of what has happened to Hatty. A happy ending ensues for Hatty but, alas, not for Sir Robert. The second piece, The Milverton Adventure (3m., 2w.), pits Holmes and Watson against a nefarious blackmailer, Charles Milverton, who is blackmailing one of Holmes' clients, a woman who wrote several damning letters to a former lover that could, if revealed, destroy her impending marriage to the Earl of Dovercourt. In his effort to save his client, Holmes plans a radical solution: burgling Milverton's house and retrieving the damning correspondence. On the night of the burglary, however, Holmes' and Watson's attempt is interrupted by an unforeseen incident. Another woman, whose life has already been destroyed by Milverton's blackmailing schemes, intrudes and fatally shoots the blackmailer. Do they turn the woman who murdered Milverton into the police or not? It is the original concluding play, The Disappearance of Adam (2m., 2w.), that makes this evening with Holmes unique. In this mind-boggling play, Holmes must solve one of the existential mysteries. With its theme of life and death, the great detective, the super sleuth of innumerable cases, must solve the riddle that has puzzled the most brilliant minds in history! How does a person cope with his or her own demise? Does Holmes solve this case? Yes and no. A not-to-be-missed climax!
