Holmes and Watson

McAninch Arts Center
425 Fawell Blvd Glen Ellyn

Keeps you guessing. Three years following the mysterious "death" of Sherlock Holmes at Reichenbach, there have been many who've claimed to be Holmes, all debunked as imposters by the faithful partner of the sleuth, Watson. But now three separate men insist that they are the infamous literary master, having survived that encounter at the Falls. Full of twists and turns, this is a riveting and clever adventure from award-winning playwright Jeffrey Hatcher.

"...Suffice to say Hatcher's droll drama keeps the audience guessing. However, the subplot about a mysterious woman is confusing and Watson's failure to identify his old friend from the asylum inmates feels amiss. Moreover, Hatcher's failure to elaborate on madness -- a condition Watson references upon arriving at the asylum and which animates characters throughout Doyle's canon -- is among several threads Hatcher leaves hanging. Fortunately, BTE's well-acted, good-looking production compensates for the narrative knots."
