A Baltimore Premiere Production! When an anonymous note sends a newlywed wife looking for help, Miss Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Dorothy Watson work together to uncover the secrets surrounding a corrupt police inspector whose wives have a habit of turning up dead. In a time and place where gender roles are rigidly defined, these unconventional women dare to challenge societal norms by providing an unusual, but necessary, service. Inspired by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, this theatrical fan fiction shines a new light on favorite characters from the canon, re-examining the Victorian world of Holmes and Watson by exploring the added obstacles faced by these two iconic characters as women. The production will be helmed by FPCT Managing Director, Brad Norris, who recently produced The Thanksgiving Play at FPCT, and directed Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere at Cohesion Theatre Company.  

This show is suitable for all ages.

“Young Stamford looked rather strangely at me over his wine-glass. 'You don't know Sherlock Holmes yet,' he said; 'perhaps you would not care for him as a constant companion.'”


Just a few lines into A Study in Scarlet, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s first novel, and we find the first mention of the name, Sherlock Holmes, along with a veiled warning. Adventure is not for everyone dear reader, perhaps you’d prefer to stay at home under a nice warm blanket instead. And yet what could entice the reader more than the threat of meeting someone that might push their buttons, rile them up, and perhaps even get them involved in a few close calls. It turns out that’s exactly what happens too. From this first meeting Holmes and Watson go on to become the most famous detective duo in literature, and Conan Doyle would go on to define a genre with his stories, pacing, suspense, and structure. There’s not a detective or crime drama on television or in film that hasn't borrowed, adapted or stolen directly from Sherlock Holmes.


But what if there had been no great man of science and deduction? No Afghan War veteran doctor at his side? We start our play from the same place, the same time, and yet we look to the life of Victorian Era women for our inspiration. Living lives with fewer rights and opportunities than the men of the time, yet fighting fiercely to gain a better life for themselves. Pioneers like Doctor Elizabeth Garret Anderson, the first female physician and surgeon in England, are a part of our play for good reason. They inspire us and remind us that rooting our story in truth can be incredibly powerful. I was drawn to this script years ago when it was produced in Chicago, and I knew I wanted to bring it to Baltimore as soon as I could. These iconic characters, not reimagined, but reinvigorated, breathe new ideas, perspective, and relevance into these beloved detective stories. And this cast and production team have knocked it out of the park.


The power of women defying the prescribed roles that society has forced on them is the main theme of this piece. And yes, there is crime and murder and a mystery to solve. But there is also strength to be drawn on and a message for any who want to hear it. Please be warned, adventure is not for everyone. But you, dear reader, you look like someone who is ready to part with your comfortable surroundings for a while. Maybe even longer than you yet realize. And if that’s true, well then I think it’s time for you to meet Miss Sherlock Holmes. I think you just might prefer her as a constant companion.

Personal highlights include but are not limited to operating sound on a moving bus for Promenade with Single Carrot, performing countless hours of improvised comedy with The Early Monday Morning Show and Drop Three, portraying Doctor Everett Scott in the Rocky Horror Show, stage managing and sound designing Mr Burns: A Post-Electric Play and far too much 4 a.m. sleep-deprived set building.

She has been a stage hand before for Alice in Wonderland and just a few weeks ago wrapped up a production of Little Shop of Horrors as stage manager. She would like to especially thank Benni for letting her know about Miss Holmes at Fells Point Corner Theatre  but also the whole cast and crew for welcoming her into the group, so last minute. She would also like to thank her professor Dr. Bossert, Ann Turiano, and Chris Cotterman for getting her to keep coming back to do shows and eventually end up doing this one!
