Byers-Evans House Theatre to Premiere SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS, 9/13
The Byers-Evans House Theatre Company presents Sherlock Holmes and the Whitechapel Murders, a world premiere, by Brandon Palmer. This Victorian mystery comes to the Byers-Evans House, located at 1310 Bannock Street in Denver, on September 13, with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 6:00 p.m., through October 12.
Based on the well-known characters from Arthur Conan Doyle's original works and the true events of the Jack the Ripper murders in Whitechapel, England, Sherlock Holmes and the Whitechapel Murders takes us into Dr. John H. Watson's deed box as he reveals his secret notes about the case forty years later. The master sleuth meets perhaps the most elusive and illustrious killer of British history in a case that presses his science of deduction to its limits. Can he answer the largely-debated question: Who was Jack the Ripper?
Mature subject matter. Suitable for 13 years and older.
The show takes place in the library of the historic Byers-Evans House Museum, amid the Evans family's furnishings. The house serves as the stage and creates the atmosphere appropriate to the historic nature of the story.
All ticket proceeds help support museum programs, operations and education.
Tickets are $18. For reservations, call 303-620-4933.
