Holmes and Watson begins performances tonight at Alley Theatre.

Jeffrey Hatcher's play is described as follows: "Holmes and Watson begins three years after the mysterious death of beloved detective Sherlock Holmes off Reichenbach Falls. Dr. John H. Watson receives a telegram that suggests his old friend may still be alive. The mysterious wire was sent from a doctor who states that three patients in his asylum's care have each claimed to be the late Sherlock Holmes. Watson embarks on a journey to disprove these claims. Could Sherlock Holmes really be alive after all this time?"

Mark Shanahan directs a cast comprising Jeremy Webb as Watson, David Matranga as Orderly, Dan Domingues as Signor Fonseca, Noble Shropshire as Inspector/Moriarty, and Rajeev Varma as Dr. Evans.

The creative team includes scenic designer Jim Youmans, costume designer David C. Woolard, lighting designer Rui Rita, sound designer David Budries, projection designer Erin Teachman, and stage manager Kristen Larson.

Performances continue through July 22.
