Sherlock Holmes and the Invisible Thing revival set for Rudolf Steiner Theatre

The game is afoot…

Take Note Theatre are hot on the case with a revival of Sherlock Holmes and the Invisible Thing which comes to London’s Rudolf Steiner Theatre, just a stone’s throw from 221B Baker Street, this summer.

Playwright Greg Freeman created this new thriller for the stage, setting Conan Doyle’s iconic sleuths, Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson, on to a new case involving a body in a lake, a nun and a missing father, an alcoholic witness and a mysterious housekeeper.

It’s witty and packed with intrigue which should satisfy anybody with an interest in Holmes, murder and detection.

The play first aired in 2016 at London’s Tabard Theatre and and it has been revised and re-staged for the new run. The whodunit will be directed by David Phipps-Davis.

Holmes and Watson are called to investigate a murder seemingly committed by an invisible perpetrator. As they probe into the mysterious lakeside drowning, something startling emerges…

A perplexed Inspector Peacock summons Holmes and Watson to the home of Miss Lucy Grendle, the daughter of the late Alfred Grendle – a man with a shadowy past.

Miss Lucy Grendle has a problem with vodka (and Sherlock Holmes). The last time their paths crossed, it did not end well. Tension is in the air, and it’s not just because an Invisible Thing is prowling the house.

David Phipps-Davis is a writer and director. Previous credits as a director include See Me For Myself, An Ideal Husband (Tabard Theatre), Le Comte Ory, Macbeth, L’elisir d’amore (Dorset Opera Festival), Cinderella (Regent Theatre, Ipswich) and Who Will Carry The World? (Brockley Jack Theatre).

Sherlock Holmes and the Invisible Thing runs at the Rudolf Steiner Theatre, Marylebone, from July 17 – August 18.
