A literary and social Society for study of the life and work of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson.
“A Perilous Engagement”
The Redacted Sherlock Players are back with a new play, in partnership with MX Publishing – and it’s free to enjoy online!
After Holmesian takes on the Bible, Shakespeare, and events in Nazi Germany, they switch their attention to A Perilous Engagement, Orlando Pearson’s new play about a recent political scandal, mixed with an Edwardian romance – also tinged with scandal.
Why is Ignatius Foley, member of parliament for Perth, so anxious to retrieve some administrative documents that have fallen out of his pocket at his fiancée’s house?
His betrothed, Miss Jean Leckie, wants to find out…
And what has happened in Bulgaria that makes Mycroft so anxious to despatch his brother there, with promises of major honours for successful prosecution of the investigation?
The case is set in 1907 and has no parallels whatsoever to more recent events.
It all makes for a most Perilous Engagement!
The play will be broadcast from London via Zoom, on the 11th December, starting at 8.00pm GMT/3.00pm EST.
