A fully staged performance of Blackeyed Theatre's world premiere of Sherlock Holmes: The Valley of Fear, performed in front of a live audience at the Wilde Theatre in Bracknell on 16 September 2022.

“A gripping evening’s entertainment...This intense and sinister play is riveting and keeps you on the edge of your seats” Suffolk News

A mysterious, coded message is received, a warning of imminent danger, drawing Sherlock Holmes and the faithful Dr Watson into a tale of intrigue and murder stretching from 221B Baker Street to an ancient moated manor house to the bleak Pennsylvanian Vermissa Valley. Faced with a trail of bewildering clues, Holmes begins to unearth a darker, wider web of corruption, a secret society and the sinister work of one Professor Moriarty.
