In “The Final Problem” the famous detective is brought into the modern-world as he faces the threat of global terrorism and international criminals. Based on two Arthur Conan Doyle stories, the play sees Sherlock Holmes meet the mysterious Irene Adler and come face-to-face with the murderous Moriarty.

Dave Reid returns to his award-winning role as Sherlock, with Siobhan Edge as his faithful housekeeper Mrs Hudson and Danny Almond as John Watson. As the play begins, Watson has just got married so Holmes finds himself getting restless and taking on ever more dangerous cases.

Given a job by his brother Mycroft (David Walker) he meets the mysterious Adler (Zoe Jones), before a deadly rendezvous at the Reichenbach Falls with Professor Moriarty (Ashley Hambrook).

The production takes audiences from London to the Swiss Alps as the case becomes more deadly.
