Mysterious Circumstances

June 11 - July 21, 2019
Gil Cates Theater
Featuring Hugo Armstrong, John Bobek, Austin Durant, Leo Marks, Ramiz Monsef, Helen Sadler & Alan Tudyk

Inspired by The New Yorker article Mysterious Circumstances: The Strange Death of a Sherlock Holmes Fanatic by David Grann, the play centers around the true story of the mysterious death of Richard Lancelyn Green, the world’s foremost scholar on Sherlock Holmes. After spending two decades searching for the missing papers of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Green came close to unlocking the secrets behind Holmes’ creator when he tracked down an elusive box which was said to be cursed.

What is fact and what is fiction? With multiple suspects and competing motives, Green’s death raises questions that may be answered only by Holmes himself. Mysterious Circumstances uses breathtaking theatricality and magic to uncover the mystery behind this true crime, featuring Emmy nominee Alan Tudyk (Spamalot, Firefly, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) as Richard Lancelyn Green & Sherlock Holmes.
