Event Description

5 Star Review on TripAdvisor by TravelingAmos on 11/6/17 when the play opened in Nov. 2017

"While a play consisting of actors speaking into microphones as if performing on radio may sound boring, this was far from it. We were here during "Sherlock Holmes Weekend" in November, and we added this to the overall experience. The quality of the acting here was first-rate! The sound engineer simulated sounds for fire, wind, water, and other various sounds right in front of us as the actors spoke into the microphone. If you come to Cape May for "Sherlock Holmes Weekend" in the spring or fall, a visit here is a must!"

It's a race against time for Holmes and Watson to stop murders in a country manor. Performed "radio-style" with live sound effects and commercials, it's based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's story, adapted by Craig Wichman. The script received the National Federation of Community Broadcasters' "Gold Reel" for Radio Drama Award.
