Synopsis

Winner of the Louis B. Mayer Award, his diabolically clever play opened on Broadway in August of 1987 and starred Frank Langella as Holmes and Donal Donnelly as Watson. "Part spoof, part loving tribute and all fun..." --The Register, the play centers on a death threat against Sherlock Holmes by the supposed son of his name nemesis, Professor Moriarty. Oddly enough, however, Holmes is warned of the plot by Moriarty's daughter, to whom Holmes is strongly attracted. The plot then twists and turns until Holmes finds himself imprisoned in a dank cellar. The play mixes suspense and humor leading to a stunning final twist which will surely catch audiences by by complete, and breath-stopping surprise. "Sherlock's Last Case is entertaining, pure and simple. The play is full of surprises and stunning theatricality ." --Daily News.
