Formation Festival: Sherlock Holmes: The Final Reckoning

18:45, 25 Feb - 03 Mar

Prepare to be surprised. You will see Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson as never before. This brilliant, unorthodox new play looks at the immortal duo from an ingenious and surprising perspective: The final reckoning! Here is a brand new and shocking take on Sherlock Holmes.


David Stuart Davies is the author of two very popular solo plays about Sherlock Holmes, as well as many highly acclaimed Holmes novels, critical studies of Holmes, and the definitive biography of Jeremy Brett’s all but definitive performance. David is a world-renowned Sherlockian, a member of the Baker Street Irregulars, and the provider of commentaries for the DVD box-sets of both the Jeremy Brett and Basil Rathbone Holmes productions. He brings all this experience and expertise to bear on a truly original look at Holmes and Watson. Expect the unexpected!

Michael Daviot and Mark Kydd are well known figures on the Edinburgh theatre scene, both having recently performed highly acclaimed solo shows, respectively Don Quixote Unbound and There Were Two Brothers.

Emily Ingram is an exciting young Director, Dramaturg and founder of Some Kind of Theatre, Edinburgh’s literary theatre company, and Shakespeare on the Sofa.
