“Llewellyn’s performance… was luminous, intense and a master class in the art of holding an audience spellbound.” SOUTH WALES EVENING POST
Sherlock Holmes... The Death & Life
The World's Greatest Detective refuses to leave the stage!
A wryly humorous tale, of murder, mystery & the occult…
Arthur Conan Doyle tires of his ‘intolerably arrogant’ Sherlock Holmes and creates arch-villain Moriarty to dispose of him. But Doyle’s dangerous strategy, combined with his passion for spiritualism, has unexpectedly bizarre, comic and dramatic consequences.
Sherlock Holmes… the Death and Life is a light-hearted fantasy, illustrating the conflict between an author’s intentions and the rebellious personalities of his literary creations.
Atmospheric lighting and a thrilling original score from RSC composer Simon Slater contribute to a memorable, moving and intensely theatrical experience.
