Synopsis: Three years after the mysterious death of beloved detective Sherlock Holmes off Reichenbach Falls, Dr. John H. Watson receives a telegram that suggests his old friend may still be alive. The mysterious wire was sent from a doctor who states that three patients in his asylum’s care have each claimed to be the late Sherlock Holmes. Could Sherlock Holmes really be alive after all this time?

The Character breakdown is as follows:

WATSON Male, 40's.  Holmes's longtime sidekick.

DR. EVANS Male, 40's.  Director of the asylum.

ORDERLY/MORIARTY/INSPECTOR Male, Late 30's/Early 40's.  One of Dr. Evans's assistnats/Sherlock's nemesis.  He is an older man with a dark, quizzical personality.

MATRON/THE WOMAN Female, 30's.  Dr. Evans's other assistant.  She carries a chilly, almost robotic demeanor.  A beautiful and mysterious woman.

HOLMES 1/THE CLIENT Male, Late 30's/Early 40's.  Brusque, acerbic and highly intuitive.  Looks exactly like the real Holmes.

HOLMES 2 Male, Late 30's/Early 40's.  Sports a general look of ragged homelessness.  His manner is both restless and skeptical.

HOLMES 3/SIGNOR FONESCA Male, Late 30's/Early 40's.  Blind, deaf and nearly catatonic, overall unresponsive.  Looks incredibly similar to the original Holmes, but has a shaved head (the result of "experiments").

We are also in need of many non-acting positions. These include:

Set builders and designers
Stage crew
...and other production-oriented positions.

If you are interested in any of the non-acting positions, E-mail the producers and they will set up an interview.
