Tacit Theatre return to Southwark Playhouse with a brand new adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's detective classic.
A young and ambitious Holmes at the outset of his career meets a war-ravaged, disenchanted Watson invalided out of the army from the horrors of a war in Afghanistan - aimlessly floating around London and fast running out of money.
A gruesome discovery in a derelict house in Camberwell sets them on a trail of intrigue and revenge that leads through Victorian London's murky underworld across the world to a Mormon settlement in Utah.
Tacit Theatre's new production features an original score and live music, immersive design and an ensemble cast of actor-musicians. It follows two sold-out runs of The Canterbury Tales at Southwark Playhouse, and last year's national tour.
Casting and further creative details to be announced.
