Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Suicide Club


Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Suicide Club 


I’ve always enjoyed Sherlock Holmes movies and books. They keep me guessing the whole entire time as the evidence leads to different twists and turns. Sherlock Holmes always has something witty to say that adds humor to what can be a dire situation.




I  was not familiar with the plot prior to the show which I liked.  I enjoyed trying to figure out whodunnit along with Holmes.



Here is a little more about the play.




The world’s most famous fictional sleuth adds a novel chapter to his repertoire with playwright Jeffrey Hatcher’s electrifying new whodunit Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Suicide Club, which opens the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park’s 55th season in the Robert S. Marx Theatre. The play is an inventive mash-up of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic characters and the Robert Louis Stevenson short story “The Suicide Club,” providing a clever, intricately woven new mystery for Holmes to deduce.


 Sherlock Holmes has never shied away from danger, but his latest adventure may be his most treacherous ever. The members of London’s Suicide Club play a harrowing game of Russian roulette to determine their role as victim or executioner. When the brilliant sleuth finds himself entangled in their secretive web, his own life hangs in the balance … and it’s not clear whether he wants to be saved.

This play has humor mixed with suspense which made it really fun to watch.  Make sure that you don’t miss it!
