EAG to Present THE BLUE CARBUNCLE: A SHERLOCK HOLMES CHRISTMAS ADVENTURE

The Episcopal Actors' Guild will welcome Sign of Four Productions to the Guild Hall stage on Thursday, December 9 for a LIVE and IN-PERSON one-night-only dramatic reading of The Blue Carbuncle: A Sherlock Holmes Christmas Adventure, adapted by Andrew Joffe from the short story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Picture it... December. London, 1889. A recently-married Dr. Watson visits his friend, Sherlock Holmes, to convey his Christmas greetings, but both become involved in solving the theft of a priceless gem - secreted inside a goose - which they pursue all over London.

"A charming adaptation...it overflows with the true spirit of the season! Paul Singleton gives us brief glimpses of the emotional loneliness behind the pipe-chomping Holmes' piercing intellect and deftly illuminates the famous sleuth's unswerving moral passion." --BACKSTAGE
