A radio drama that pairs an exhilarating murder mystery with curated classical music to bring the intrigue to life. When a despicable theatre critic is murdered, Holmes and Watson are soon visited by George Bernard Shaw, an aspiring Irish playwright who entices Holmes to take the case. As they cross swords with the most famous literary luminaries of the day -- Oscar Wilde, Gilbert & Sullivan, Henry Irving, Bram Stoker, and a young H.G. Wells, Holmes and Watson come face to face with their own celebrity as they pursue the killer in this rollickingly funny whodunit.(A stage version of this play is also available.)
