SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE VALLEY OF FEAR Will Continue its Tour in 2023

Following its UK-wide and digital success, Blackeyed Theatre's acclaimed stage adaptation of Sherlock Holmes: The Valley of Fear will continue its tour in 2023, with 31 further venues announced. This gripping world premiere is full of mystery and adventure, combining original music, stylish theatricality and magical storytelling for an unforgettable theatrical experience. Adapted from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fourth and final Sherlock Holmes novel, the production tours the UK until 26th May 2023, and it can also be streamed online until 22nd January 2023.

A mysterious, coded message is received, a warning of imminent danger, drawing Sherlock Holmes and the faithful Dr Watson into a tale of intrigue and murder stretching from 221B Baker Street to an ancient, moated manor house to the bleak Pennsylvanian Vermissa Valley. Faced with a trail of bewildering clues, Holmes begins to unearth a darker, wider web of corruption, a secret society and the sinister work of one Professor Moriarty.

Adapted by Nick Lane and with original music composed by Tristan Parkes, The Valley of Fear sees Luke Barton (One Man, Two Guvnors, New Wolsey/Nuffield Theatres UK Tour) and Joseph Derrington (The Importance of Being Earnest, MAC Belfast) reprise their critically acclaimed roles as the iconic duo Holmes and Watson. The cast also includes Blake Kubena (Vikings, Amazon Prime/History Channel), Gavin Molloy (The Alchemist, Riverside Studios) and Alice Osmanksi (Some Mothers Do Ave Em, UK Tour).

Artistic Director of Blackeyed Theatre Adrian McDougall comments, We've been so heartened by the audience reaction to The Valley of Fear, both for the live tour and the online stream. There's so much to enjoy, from the performances to the design to the ingenious script, which manages to condense the novel's two narratives into a joyous, stylish piece of theatre. And how lovely that audiences are reveling in the opportunity to help solve this epic mystery!

Sherlock Holmes: The Valley of Fear is produced by Blackeyed Theatre in association with South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell.
