Sherlock Holmes and the Invisible Thing

Thu 18th July 2019
Rudolf Steiner Theatre, London, NW1 6XT
By Greg Freeman, based on characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Holmes and Watson are called to a Gothic mansion to investigate a murder seemingly committed by an invisible perpetrator. As they probe into the mysterious lakeside drowning, something startling emerges…

A perplexed Inspector Peacock summons Holmes and Watson to the home of Miss Lucy Grendle, the daughter of the late Alfred Grendle – a man with a shadowy past.

Miss Lucy Grendle has a problem with vodka (and Sherlock Holmes). The last time their paths crossed, it did not end well. Tension is in the air, and it’s not just because an Invisible Thing is prowling the house.

As the night unfolds, a lethal concoction of alcohol, origami and a cadaver ensures that Sherlock Holmes has finally met his match.

Greg Freeman is an award-winning stage playwright; his plays Doig, Beak Street and No Picnic were all Time Out Critics’ Choices and have been performed worldwide. Freeman adapted and edited the successful American sitcom Who’s the Boss into ITV’s The Upper Hand, and with Lila Whelan adapted Conan Doyles’ first Sherlock Holmes book A Study in Scarlet for the stage.

First performed in 2016 at the Tabard Theatre to rave reviews, this new production of Sherlock Holmes and The Invisible Thing is directed by David Phipps-Davis and plays from the 17th July - 18th August 2019.
