Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET) will continue its 20th anniversary season-long celebration with the new thriller, "Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Suicide Club" by nationally acclaimed playwright Jeffrey Hatcher running from Feb. 28-March 17 at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center.
The play, directed by GET Artistic Director Robert J. Farley and sponsored by the Macy’s Foundation, goes behind the impressive façade of a windowless house where some of Europe’s most powerful men gather to play a game, according to the show's release.
About the Play
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. The play asks the question: Does Holmes want to die? Or is this some other game? 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, according to the release.
