Stage thriller featuring the famed sleuth in a tale full of mystery, romance, twists and chills

In the heart of London, behind the impassive facade of a windowless house, some of Europe's most powerful men gather to play a game ...

The game is murder

And this is The Suicide Club

But the club has a new member - Sherlock Holmes: brilliant, brooding, the greatest detective in the world

So why does Holmes wish to die?

And can his friend Dr Watson save him?

Or doesn't Holmes want to be saved?

"Playwright Jeffrey Hatcher takes Arthur Conan Doyle's famous characters and drops them into a story inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's novella The Suicide Club to create a thrilling comic mystery. The whodunit mystery comes complete with a wow-I-didn't-see-that-coming ending" ~ Arizona Daily Star

"Hatcher has a winner ... it's intelligent, clever, teasing, seductively engaging and just plain fun" ~ Tucson Weekly

"A darkly comic new take on the archetypal detective" ~ Arizona Republic
