About Sherlock's Last Case

Take a trip to Baker Street with the legendary Sherlock Holmes and his trusted sidekick Dr. Watson, to solve the seemingly perfect crime. When a threat is made against Holmes' life by the son of his longtime nemesis, Moriarty, not everything is as it appears. The game’s afoot with equal parts hilarity and intrigue in the long-overdue Boston premiere of this murderously funny comedy-thriller, directed by Huntington favorite Maria Aitken (Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 StepsBedroom Farce).

Approximate run time: Sherlock's Last Case run approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes, including one ten-minute intermission. Please note: This production includes theatrical haze, a strobe lighting effect, and the smoking of cocoa shell cigarettes (100% nicotine free).

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
