William Gillette / Arthur Conan Doyle
Monomoy Theatre, Chatham, MA July 19-23
The great American actor and playwright William Gillette revised a five-act drama about the exploits of Sherlock Holmes written by Arthur Conan Doyle, and new era of the Holmes legend was born. Loosely based on the Holmes tales A Scandal in Bohemia and The Final Problem, Gillette extensively rewrote the script tailoring the part of Holmes to suit his own personality. After Gillette received Conan Doyle's approval of the final draft of Sherlock Holmes in 1899, he played the part for over 30 years, touring across America, Europe, and England.
British director and actor, Richard Mangan is coming back again from London to direct this thrilling, romantic adventure that pits Holmes and Dr. Watson against their greatest adversary, romance all playing a part in the mystery. Monomoy favorite Bill Kux is also returning and will display his remarkable versatility moving effortlessly from playing last summer's Queen Aggravaine to this year's Sherlock Holmes. Chatham and London's own Bernard Cornwell also joins the cast playing Dr. WatsonFor more information on the theatre or to purchase tickets online please visit the Monomoy Theatre website.
