The Game's A Foot!

(How & Why I Started Writing Sherlock Holmes Plays)


A Collection of Original Sherlock Holmes Themed Comedy Stage Plays

As everyone knows, Sherlock Holmes is one of the most well known and loved characters, created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.   Having my own collection of all of the Holmes 'cases'  and watched the Basil Rathbone films, as well as the Granada TV series with Jeremy Brett as Mr. Holmes, and David Burke/Edward Hardwicke as Dr. Watson, I became inspired to begin writing some original comedy stage plays, based on these wonderful creations.

I recently had the honour to meet Edward Hardwicke, and to talk to him briefly about the two Holmes play scripts that I handed to him a while ago, for him to appraise.  I was gratified to learn, that he found them, 'highly entertaining, and very funny!'   This was to say at the least, extremely encouraging!

To date I have six completed comedy plays, and many others in various stages of development.  Each page I develop here on this site, will highlight each play that I have either completed, or which is currently under development... (unfortunately, having such an overproductive imagination, as I do regarding these Sherlock Holmes projects, there may be several individual pages to trawl through... so I do apologise!!)

I Hope that you will enjoy reading about each of  the individual stories, and what inspired me to come up with such a high number of very unorthodox titles, characters and plotlines!

 

The very first play, (bearing the same title as this page!) deals with a remarkable situation involving Egyptian artefacts, a Mummy, and even Holmes's nemesis... Professor James Moriarty, who disguises himself in as at least three different persons.
