On TOUR may 23-june 1 2014
MORTIMER: Miss Holmes, it was–
WATSON: –the footprints of–
MORTIMER: –her bust.
Co-production with Current Theatrics
In this madcap adventure by award-winning Toronto playwright S.R. Kriger, Holmes sends Watson to take on the giant bitch that has already killed one Baskerville and seems to be stalking the second. Full of incriminating clues, and improbable mires, moors, Napoleons, one-liners, snakes, dizzying scene swapping and women playing major roles (gasp!), the show is impossible to resist. And of course, there are corsets…
Socratic Theatre Collective is very proud to collaborate with Current Theatrics to bring S.R. Kriger’s play to the stage in Phoenix, AZ, and Las Vegas, NV. Contact Current.Theatrics@gmail.com for more information about the tour, company history and other productions as well as interviews, promotional pictures, and other media needs.
“A short, gender-blended parody of the Conan Doyle story with adorable, sexy, steampunky costumes (including the first tiny deerstalkanator hat I’ve ever seen), some nice, goofy acting choices, and subtly self-referential jokes about literature, stage conventions, and gender [insert noun here].”
“This show… reminds me of the very long sketches people tend to write in high school when the iconoclastic nature of parody first becomes extremely appealing, except that Kriger and the company are much bolder and brainier than we were in high school.”
