Arts: ‘Sherlock Homes...the Death and Life’ in Letchworth
SUPER-SLEUTH Sherlock Holmes takes centre stage in Letchworth GC on Friday alongside his creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in a wryly humourous play.
Presented in association with the renowned Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, this tale of murder, mystery and the occult features Roger Llewellyn, whose earlier appearance as the great detective in Sherlock Holmes...the Last Act! drew critical acclaim.
Time Out said: “Roger Llewellyn precisely embodies Sherlock. Conan Doyle would have approved.”
In Sherlock Homes...the Death and Life, the world’s greatest detective – recently seen in 21st century guise on TV – refuses to leave the stage.
So, in this fantasy based on a fiction, Conan Doyle tires of his “intolerably arrogant Sherlock Holmes” and invents the malevolent Moriarty to dispose of him.

But Conan Doyle’s dangerous strategy, combined with his passion for raising the spirits of the dead, has rather more surreal and dramatic consequences than he bargains for.
Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start at Letchworth Arts Centre, with tickets priced at �11. Call 01462 670788 to book.
