Barter staging "Sherlock Holmes"

Date(s):  September 28 - November 11, 2017
Venue: Barter Theatre
133 West Main Street
Abingdon, VA 24212

ABINGDON, Va.- The world-famous detective works to unravel one of his biggest cases yet in "Sherlock Holmes and the American Problem," starting on Gilliam Stage Sept. 28.

When Buffalo Bill and his Wild West Show begin touring in Victorian London for Queen Victoria's 50th year on the British throne, Holmes is drawn to the case after the city is plagued by mysterious crimes.

Holmes works to crack the case while coming in contact with famous faces like Annie Oakley in this tale featuring Zacchaeus Kimbrell and Justin Tyler Lewis and other members of Barter Theatre's resident acting company.

"When Arthur Conan Doyle created Sherlock Holmes, the world was in desperate need of him," said director Katy Brown. "People needed someone who could look through the smog and see that things were still "elementary' if you knew which things to look at and which to ignore. Consequently, people were mad for him then, and we are still mad for him today."

Call the Barter Theatre Box Office at 276-628-3991 for more information. Tickets for every show start at $20. The show runs through Nov. 11.
