Classical Theatre Company presents The Speckled Band: An Adventure of Sherlock Holmes
This play, penned by Doyle himself in 1910, dramatizes one of the Great Detective's most famous mysteries: The Adventure of the Speckled Band. Adapted by Timothy N. Evers (whose adaptation of Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus the CTC produced last season), this script has been streamlined to have a contemporary feel. Evers has also inserted some of the original short story into the play, helping fill out the scenes and characters more fully.
CTC executive artistic director John Johnston, who, along with Evers is a lifelong Holmes fanatic, has been planning this production for several years. Set to star Johnston in the titular role and directed by CTC veteran Troy Scheid, this production will capitalize on the Sherlock-mania that is gripping pop culture right now, while breathing new life into Doyle's century-old play.
