MS. HOLMES & MS. WATSON – APT 2B
Cheerfully Desecrating the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Emily A. Rollie
An irreverent, darkly comic, modern take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous sleuth and sidekick, this fast-paced romp re-examines the world’s most famous detective with a bold new feminist lens. In this highly theatrical, small-cast escapade, oddball female roommates Sherlock Holmes & Joan Watson join forces to emerge from pandemic fog as a deeply codependent, quasi-dysfunctional Odd Couple adventure duo—solving mysteries and kicking butts, until they come face to face with a villain who seems to have all of the answers.
Guest Artist Emily A. Rollie directs Nick Chier, Sophia Schmidt, Megan Tennessen, and Nora Wondra in this fun filled caper.
Emily A. Rollie also serves as the Intimacy Director, Whitney Derendinger is the Fight Director, Paula Vanlandingham is the Vocal Coach, and Grant Borcherding is Assistant Director. The scenic designer is Juli Gessner, costume designer is Jim Greco, assisted by Brady Madison, lighting designer is Noah Englerth, sound designer is Isabel White, technical direction by Rob Wagner, properties by Myra Delikat, with M. Murphy as stage manager, assisted by Judy Zhu.
