Opening weekend at 2nd Space: ‘Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure’

Good Company Players

After the holidays, do you feel like you’re on digital overload? Does the thought of one more bout of Netflix or overhyped college football game on TV make your hands clammy? Perhaps a restorative dose of live theater is what you need.

Good Company Players presents a lively updating of the world’s most famous detective with “Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure.” This reinterpretation of the 1899 play by William Gillette and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was written by Steven Dietz. In it, Holmes depicts the famous detective taking on one last case just as he is about to retire.

Johnna Leary has a recap of the plot in DC Metro Theatre Arts:

The King of Bohemia is being blackmailed, and the world famous opera singer Irene Adler is mixed up in the heart of the crime. Joined by his faithful companion, Watson, Sherlock Holmes sets out to solve one last mystery which leads him straight into danger at the hands of his arch enemy.

The GCP production opens Friday, Jan. 3, at the 2nd Space Theatre and runs through Feb. 23. The cast includes such usual suspects as Gordon Moore and Henry Montelongo, both pictured above.
