"A clever spoof with fabulously over-the-top twists and turns.”Backstage
"Brilliant!”London Telegraph

Take a surprising trip to Baker Street with the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes and his trusted sidekick Dr. Watson, who are tested once again to solve the seemingly perfect crime. Sherlock’s life is threatened by the son of his longtime nemesis Moriarty, but not all is as it appears. The game’s afoot with equal parts hilarity and intrigue in this comedy-thriller, directed by Huntington favorite Maria Aitken (Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps, Bedroom Farce).

TICKET ALERT: Tickets to Sherlock's Last Case will go on sale to the public in mid-June. Want to secure the best seats at the best prices now? Consider a seated or FlexPass subscription!

Maria Aitkin“I have spent an uneasy year away from the Huntington, working all the time, but feeling deprived of my true theatrical home. Now, thank heaven, I'm doing Sherlock’s Last Case in the fall – a brilliant and eccentric comedy – and I will be united with my favorite theatre in the world, staffed by wonderful people who anticipate my every whim. I can't wait.”— Maria Aitken
