by | Apr 20, 2024

Taproot Theatre is excited to announce the third play in its 2024 Jewell Mainstage Season, Sherlock Holmes and the Precarious Position by Margaret Raether, based on the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. With four actors playing multiple characters, the production will be fun and theatrical while it showcases the triumph of justice and the enduring friendship between two of literature’s most recognizable characters. Directed by Taproot’s Producing Artistic Director, Karen Lund, the show opens on May 17 and runs through June 15.

Corsets, crowns, and a missing royal jewel set the stage for a battle of wits in this tale of deception, suspense, and deduction. When the bookish Perkins sisters approach Sherlock Holmes with a case, they unveil a theatrical scheme of encyclopedic proportions. 4 actors play multiple characters and the mystery turns deadly.
