Sherlock at the Alley

While Sherlock Holmes stories have existed for over 100 years, this tale was written by Katie Forgette in 2008. It is loosely adapted from Sherlock Holmes by Doyle and Gillette (1899) and from the writings of Oscar Wilde and William Shakespeare.


Also, Alley Theatre has a history staging the iconic character, and actor Todd Waite has played him five times!

This play uses a mix of fictional characters alongside people who really existed. While the actions in the play are made up, some moments and lines are inspired by the real-life characters.
