Sherlock Holmes: A Study in Lipstick, Ketchup and Blood
08 June – 07 July 2pm & 7pm
By Arthur Conan Doyle and adapted by Lesley Hart
In a blasted world, two survivors – a doctor and an actor – pass the time by staging their favourite story salvaged from the flames: A Study in Scarlet, the origin story of Sherlock Holmes. But when tensions arise around casting, more than dead bodies start to surface…
Pitlochry Festival Theatre will produce a brand-new adaptation by playwright and actor Lesley Hart of A Study in Scarlet, the 1887 Sherlock Holmes origin story, marking the first appearance of Holmes and Dr Watson, the most famous detective duo in literature.
Audiences will be enthralled by this riveting play as a famous mystery is brought to life in the amphitheatre, nestled in the Explorers garden within the shadow of Ben-Y-Vrackie.
Ticket prices from £29. Concessions available – call Box Office for more information.
*Advisory warning – we recommend this play for those aged 10 and over due to strong language.
