Touring the UK from September 2018

by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Adapted for the Stage by Nick Lane

“When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth”

In Autumn 2018, Blackeyed Theatre brings to the stage a brand new adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s epic second Sherlock Holmes novel, The Sign of Four. Named one of The Hundred Definitive Novels in English by The Guardian in 2014 (at number 26), The Sign of Four has everything you’d want for a breath-taking piece of theatre; adventure, romance, comedy and of course one or two rather brilliant deductions!

When Mary Morstan arrives at 221B, Baker Street to request help with the mystery of her missing father, Holmes takes the case and together with his companion Dr Watson swiftly unravels a ripping yarn involving murder, plots and stolen jewels.

Don’t miss the world premiere of Sherlock Holmes: The Sign of Four. Original music, stylish theatricality and engaging story-telling combine for an unforgettable theatrical experience.
