THE SCENE: We invite you to step back in time to 221B Baker St., London, 1887, with our Victorian winter candle, “Holmes for the Holidays”. With Christmas season in full swing, Sherlock Holmes finds himself facing a deadly threat from convicted serial killer John Norton, who has just escaped from prison with the aid of his 6th wife and her dubious Christmas pudding. Will Sherlock Holmes find a way to catch the killer and unravel the mystery of his escape before Christmas is ruined? But of course! Outwitting dastardly criminals and foiling their schemes is all in a day’s work for Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson. As he might attest, it’s quite simply “elementary”.
