Description
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. The production was first produced at the Bristol Old Vic in 1993, starring Robert Powell as Sherlock Holmes and Roy Barraclough as Dr Watson, before embarking on a national tour. Formerly known as "Sherlock Holmes - The Musical"
