Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure

By Adapted by Steven Dietz

Directed by Jack Phillips

The year is 1893, and the world’s greatest detective is approaching the end of his career when a case too tempting to ignore presents itself. A king is about to be blackmailed over a notorious photograph, and the woman at the heart of the crime is opera singer Irene Adler. With his trusted associate, Dr. Watson, at his side, Holmes pursues first the case, and then the affections of Miss Adler. In doing so, he marches straight into the lair of his long-time adversary, the villainous Professor Moriarty.
