Sherlock Holmes and the Invisible Thing
By Greg Freeman
Wednesday 17th July 2019 - Sunday 18th August 2019
Press Night: 25 July
Director: David Phipps-Davis
Take Note Theatre today, on Arthur Conan Doyle’s birthday, announces the brand-new production of Sherlock Holmes and The Invisible Thing, to be staged at Rudolf Steiner Theatre – a stone’s throw from Holmes’ 221B Baker Street. Written by Greg Freeman and directed by David Phipps-Davis, the production opens on 25 July, with previews from 17 July, and runs until 18 August.
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.
The play was originally performed at the Tabard Theatre in 2016, and has been revised and restaged for the current run.
Greg Freeman’s credits include Kathmandu performed at the Menier Chocolate Factory and Pleasance Edinburgh, Dogstar, Montagu, Empty Vessels and the co – adaptation of Conan Doyle’s first Sherlock Holmes book A Study in Scarlet for the stage. His credits also include the critically acclaimed Doig! The Musical, No Picnic and Beak Street. Credits for television include the adaptation of the American sitcom Who’s The Boss into ITV’s The Upper Hand.
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?
