Sherlock Holmes: The Sign of the Four
Thursday 23 November, 7:30pm
About the artist:
Formed in 2010, Don't Go Into The Cellar! are the UK’s finest practitioners of theatrical Victoriana in a macabre vein. The company is based in the heart of the West Midlands, and the region has links with some of the greatest Victorian and Edwardian genre writers. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle began his career as a writer while practicing medicine in Birmingham and Fu Manchu's creator, Sax Rohmer, was born there, too. Washington Irving penned his classic horror tale, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" whilst living in Birmingham, and Charles Dickens performed often at the second city's Town Hall, giving the very first public reading of "A Christmas Carol" there in 1853. The famous humourist Jerome K. Jerome, author of "Three Men in a Boat"was born in nearby Walsall. Both he and Dickens were marvellous exponents of the macabre tale when the mood took them, and the spirits of all these nineteenth-century greats haunt our stage-work.
Don't Go Into The Cellar! Theatre Company presents:
In this original one-man show, Jonathan Goodwin ('Don't Go Into The Cellar!' artistic director) plays Sherlock Holmes and a miscellany of other larger-than-life characters.
