Holmes and Watson

9 April @ 7.30 am - 9.00 pm

AED 100

Two years after Sherlock Holmes’ presumed death at the Reichenbach Falls, Dr Watson is spending a good deal of his time debunking the “frauds, fakes and charlatans” who purport to be the famous detective. So when he gets a telegram saying no fewer than three men all claim to be him at a lunatic asylum (formerly a fortress, then a lighthouse) on a remote Scottish island (of course), he hops on the train to check them out.

The ever-reliable Gautan Goenka directs for Abu Dhabi Festival’s UAE Theatre Circle. There are further performances on 10 April at 2.30 and 7.30pm.
