Whats On Cardiff June 2018 Highlights

Whats On in Cardiff? An amazing cast for and amazing play, not to mention the venue. A mystery unfolds and only Sherlock can solve it.

Sherlock Holmes lives in retirement on the South Coast. He keeps bees, occasionally casts his fly fishing rod, even plays his Stradivarius when the rheumatism allows.

Aware that he’s older and slower, he’s concerned that he might be an easy target for his enemies. There have been so many over the years.

So when Mary Watson (wife of his former associate Dr John Watson) tracks him down, telling him she has seen her long-dead son, James, through the window of 221B Baker Street, Holmes is determined to solve the mystery and confront his own demons at the same time.

Robert Powell received multiple awards for his portrayal of Jesus in Franco Zefferelli’s Jesus of Nazareth. Liza Goddard is one of the UK’s favourite actresses. Her television work includes cult classics Doctor Who and Bergerac.
