Holmes and Watson

chilling mystery

Summoned to a remote asylum on a rocky island, Dr. Watson investigates three inmates who all claim to be the late master sleuth Sherlock Holmes. This eerie new puzzler by award-winning playwright Jeffrey Hatcher will stir your blood and tease your mind.

APPROXIMATE RUN TIME: 1 hour and 30 minutes, with no intermission

Holmes and Watson is a fast-paced mystery that contains mild adult themes, theatrical (non-toxic) fog and haze, strobe lights and gunshots.
