“Sherlock,” by Seattle playwright and author John Longenbaugh, was last seen at Taproot in 2010. It runs Nov. 23 through Dec. 29, with low-price previews on Nov. 16-17 and a pay-what-you-can performance on Nov. 21.

These then are the facts: The year, 1894. The date, Christmas Eve. The location, 221B Baker Street. After being presumed dead for three years, a hardened Sherlock Holmes resurfaces, turning his back on the people who need him most. Three unexpected callers arrive on Christmas Eve uncovering clues from the detective’s past, present and future. Can they save Holmes and his world from a dire end? They must “do it all in one night” to accomplish the task. A mystery full of Christmas spirits your whole family will enjoy.
