About the Play
Behind the impressive façade of a windowless house, some of Europe’s most powerful men gather to play a game. The game is Murder, and this is The Suicide Club. But the club has a new member: Sherlock Holmes – brilliant, perceptive, the greatest detective in the English-speaking world. Does Holmes want to die? Or is some other game afoot? Holmes and Watson always find themselves one step behind as the corpses of Europe’s power players start turning up all over London. This beguiling thriller brings the famous detective fully alive on the GET stage with a tale filled with endless mystery, twists, and chills in this sharp and clever brand new Holmes adventure. Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Suicide Club is written by Jeffrey Hatcher, and is based on characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and “The Suicide Club” by Robert Louis Stevenson.
