Deep in the beautiful Northumbrian countryside, a terrifying mystery and a legendary nemesis await the arrival of the world’s greatest detective. When the wife of Doctor Watson suddenly disappears, a desperate quest to find her begins. Sherlock Homes comes face to face with his greatest fear at the hands of his mortal enemy in this stunning new tale of romance and suspense.

Join Chapterhouse Theatre Company in what promises to be one of the must-see productions of the summer at the beautiful Madingley Hall. Why not book here to team it with a quintessential afternoon tea to celebrate Fathers’ Day before the performance. Why not team it with a workshop session before the performance?

Aspiring crime writers and lovers of crime fiction can investigate the two workshops taking place prior to the performance:

The Murder Plot: How to Write (and Read) Crime Fiction : How to Write (and Read) Crime Fiction  with Tim Glencross at 1.30pm
Last year crime fiction overtook 'general and literary fiction' to become the UK's bestselling genre.
What is it about crime writing that readers find so appealing?
In this workshop we will look at how modern crime novels use -- and cleverly subvert -- universal story dynamics to entertaining effect. To put it another way: how does a Jo Nesbo novel share the same 'story DNA' as a Shakespeare play? Why can it be argued that Gillian Flynn's thriller Gone Girl and the romantic comedy Notting Hill tell (almost) the same tale?
The Golden Age of Crime Writing with Jamie Bernthal-Hooker at 3.00pm
Do you love the fiction of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers?
Would you like to know more about it?
Crime fiction is as popular today as it was in the 1920s and 1930s – but the stories are very different. Or are they…? Come along to find out more about ‘the golden age’ of crime writing, and what today’s authors can learn from the old masters.
