The Revenge of Sherlock Holmes

The Revenge of Sherlock Holmes
Book, music and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse
Based on characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Directed by Mike Rand
1 – 6 July 1996

What appears at first to be the final confrontation between master detective Sherlock Holmes and his perennial arch-enemy, Professor Moriarty, proves to be more than even Holmes bargained for. He finds himself facing an old-but-new enemy whose determination to outwit and destroy the great detective is even greater than before. The ensuing intellectual cat-and-mouse games between these two larger-than-life figures form the exciting centrepiece of this original musical based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s characters.
