Sherlock Holmes novel set to take to the stage at the Theatre Royal next month

The Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is staging “The Sign of Four”, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s epic second Sherlock Holmes novel next month.

This is the spectacular world premiere tour of the show, adapted and directed by Nick Lane with music composed by Tristan Parkes and is taking place from Thursday to Saturday, October 4 to 6.

When Mary Morstan arrives at Baker Street to request help following the mysterious disappearance of her father, Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr Watson are plunged into a murky world of deception and a complex plot involving murder, corruption and stolen jewels.

Crammed full of adventure, romance, comedy and, of course, one or two rather brilliant deductions, this adaptation will combine original live music, high energy theatricality and ensemble storytelling.

The cast features Luke Barton as Sherlock Holmes (The Unexpected Guest, Misterman), Joseph Derringtonas Dr John Watson (The Importance of Being Earnest, The Canterville Ghost), Zach Leeas Jonathan Small (Bouncers, Glass Menagerie), Stephanie Rutherford as Mary Morstan (Kubla Khan, Mirror Mirror), Christopher Glover as Dost Akbar (Peckham The Soap Opera, Eastenders) and Ru Hamilton as Thaddeus Sholto (Tipping the Velvet, Peter Pan).
