An Increasingly Uncordial Invitation (To The Viewing of The Body of 'The Great Handcuff King' at 221b Baker Street)
It’s possible that the great Harry Houdini was murdered by his one-time friend Arthur Conan Doyle, but the only detective skilled enough to deduce the truth is Sherlock Holmes, a character of Doyle’s creation. in this absurd dream where skepticism meets grief, Holmes’ investigation is sidetracked by talking corpses, conniving psychics, mournful widows and what might very well be the apocalypse. 7 men, 2 women approximate running time 2 hours.
