The first play in our 2014-15 theatre season, Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily is a lighthearted comedy that will bring everyone's favorite detective to our local stage. With the recent decline in criminal activity, London's renowned sleuth is becoming bored, but a single knock on the door changes all that. The radiant Lilly Langtry is seeking assistance in retrieving some personal items that have been recently stolen from her. Doubly concerning: these items have blackmail potential for the Prince of Wales! Lilly's companion, Oscar Wilde, is working closely with her on a new production and becomes enthralled with the story that is unraveling around him. What follows is a tangle of mystery, intrigue and deception!

Set in Victorian London with a splash of steampunk, this tale of Sherlock Holmes is intertwined with actual events and rumors surrounding the real lives of Lilly Langtry, Oscar Wilde, and the Prince of Wales. Audiences will enjoy the blend of history and fiction, and can refer to their program to learn more about the historical events and people who help shape our story. Join us for this fast paced production filled with suspense, villains, comedy, romance and more! Sherlock fans won’t want to miss this!!
