Sherlock Holmes by MAD, Mar 27, Online

Goddard’s Music and Drama Club presents:
An online public reading of:
Sherlock Holmes – A Drama in Four Acts
By William Gillette and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Directed by Jon Gardner

March 27, 2021, 8pm, online

Location: Goddard Space Flight Center’s MAD Theater, online.

MAD is forming a play-reading group, which will rehearse several times and then perform public readings of scripts. The goal of the group is to have fun participating.

“Sherlock Holmes – A Drama in Four Acts,” was written by William Gillette with help from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It is an original story, not an adaptation. It was first produced in 1899 with Gillette playing Holmes; a role that he repeated many times over the next 35 years. Gillette’s use of a deerstalker cap and curved pipe in his depiction of Holmes have become enduring symbols of the character. In another important element of theatrical history, an early production featured a teen-aged Charlie Chaplin playing the pageboy Billy.

Notice: This play depicts cocaine use.
