Dr. Watson relates the tale of Holmes’ most baffling case in this world premiere comedy/mystery about the world’s greatest consulting detective.

Holmes has a new client, Miss Helen Stoner, who is soon to be wed. However, the young lady is terrified that she will be dead before her wedding day arrives, just like her sister, two years earlier. And, like her sister, lately Helen has awakened in the night to hear an odd whistling sound outside her room. Yet when she flies to the door and looks out, the hallway is empty…

Much in the style of The 39 Steps, two actors play Holmes and Watson, while the remaining cast members play all the rest of the characters, switching hats, costumes, and accents in rapid fire changes to hilarious effect. Part classic suspense, part farce, Whistling in the Dark offers up both chills and laughter.
