Walking Play - Sherlock Holmes
Frantic Redhead and Prime Productions present Sherlock Holmes: Murder in Edinburgh, written by Mark Erson and based on The Problem of Thor Bridge by Arthur Conan Doyle.
This creative and engaging “walking” play is perfect for school children who are developing an interest in reading the works of Arthur Conan Doyle - including The Lost World. Sherlock Holmes: Murder in Edinburgh is a creative adaptation of a Doyle story which introduces us to a very young Sherlock Holmes and his good friend John Watson who is studying medicine at the University of Edinburgh with Arthur Conan Doyle.
The audience will also meet Charles Darwin, guest lecturer at the University, and Louisa Stevenson, Edinburgh resident, educator and women’s rights activist in Edinburgh in the 1800s. The audience walks with the actors in the quaint Dean Village along the Water of Leith as each scene is played and the investigation unfolds to its satisfactory conclusion thus allowing the audience to be in the locations and within the action of the play along with the actors.
Critics and audiences of all ages have loved the show when it was performed to sell-out crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. We hope you will be able to bring a group of your students to see the show and director, Ginger Perkins, and the cast are available to speak to the students following the performances.
Group tickets are offered to school groups at a significant discount from the regular priced tickets.
