Director's Note

“Live radio on the stage is a theatrical gold mine. Tapping into a great story of Sherlock Holmes and writing a new detective duo I am thrilled to work alongside this great cast recreating the magic of 1950’s radio drama. And yes they really do use coconuts for horses hooves.”

Mark Kilmurry – Director
