Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion brings to life the mystery featuring famous sleuth Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson. In the Mansion’s fourth annual Sherlock Holmes Victorian Theatre event, a coded message summons Sherlock Holmes to the aide of John Douglas, but before Holmes can get to him, Douglas is found dead. The performance will be held in the Mansion’s parlor. Seating is limited for this site-specific production. Sherlock Holmes is portrayed by Josh Hitchens with Peter Zielinski as Dr. Watson.
The annual series of Sherlock Holmes has become one of our most popular programs at the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion. The very first Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet, was presented in 2012, followed in 2013 by The Speckled Band. And 2014 Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson returned to the Mansion with a new adaptation of A Scandal in Bohemia, one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s personal favorites.
Presented in collaboration with the Mütter Museum, the weekend also includes a special display from the Mütter Museum of The College of Physicians, and the Saturday evening performance features remarks by Dr. Robert Hicks, Director of the Mütter Museum. Additionally, the Friday evening performance features an introduction by Victorian scholar, freelance writer, book reviewer and literary provocateur Edward G. Pettit. All performances include a champagne reception.
