Presumed dead for three years, a hardened Sherlock Holmes resurfaces, turning his back on the people who need him most. After an ominous warning from his nemesis Professor Moriarty, three unexpected callers arrive on Christmas Eve uncovering clues from the detective’s past, present and future. Can they save Holmes and his world from a dire end? Seattle playwright John Longenbaugh deftly steers us through this magical holiday mystery, one clue at a time.
“I’m beyond pleased that this production features my original Sherlock, Terry Edward Moore, and that it’s being directed by Aaron Lamb. It couldn’t be in more capable hands than these gentlemen. I truly hope that you receive this play in the spirit in which it was intended—a holiday diversion with a few things to say about the possibility, and the invariable necessity, of forgiveness, both of others and of ourselves.” – John Longenbaugh
