Photos: Centenary Stage Presents SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE CASE OF THE JERSEY LILY

Running now till October 23, Centenary Stage Company brings to life Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's mastermind detective Sherlock Holmes in Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily in the Sitnik Theater of the Lackland Performing Arts Center and audiences are raving. "Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily was wonderful; probably the best production I've seen in the last three years. It is well cast with excellent acting. The writing was superb and on a par with a true Sherlock Holmes mystery. Go see it. No, don't just see it, observe it." - Bronc Radak, audience member

Written by Katie Forgette, this cleverly crafted play combines the wit of Oscar Wilde with the cunning of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, asHolmes, Watson and Oscar Wilde himself must band together to solve a case rife with mystery, humor and action. "Excellent, professional production in our own hometown- acting was superb, loved the accents, costumes were enchanting and the set was clever in every detail!" - Nancy Miller DeWitt, audience member

When Wilde brings celebrated actress Lillie Langrty to Baker Street, Holmes and Watson must foil a plot that threatens not only the English Crown but Holmes' own life as he faces off against his arch nemesis, "The Napoleon of Crime". As the mystery unfolds, comedy ensues as Holmes works diligently to solve the case, going so far as to disguise himself as an early version of Lady Bracknell from Wilde's latest play, 'The Importance of Being Forthright', while Watson falls head-over-heels for the Jersey Lily and a wicked professor attempts to bring the Crown to its knees.
