A Study in Scarlet (28th October – 5th Nov)

Blue Orange Arts presents –

A Study in Scarlet

by Arthur Conan Doyle

adapted by James Nicholas


On returning to London after been invalided out of the army, little does Dr John Watson know that the simple act of renting a room in Baker Street would lead him into an underground world of crime, violence and mystery.

A Study in Scarlet is the first time that we are introduced to Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic detective, Sherlock Holmes.

Watson accompanies Holmes to an abandoned house on Brixton Road, South London where a body has been discovered, its face hideously contorted. A single word is written on the wall in blood. Watson is as perplexed as the police but Holmes uses his now famous analytical skills to launch onto the trail of the killer.

Pay What You Can

Blue Orange Arts is committed to accessibility of our in-house productions and as such we offer a ‘pay what you can’ performance for all of our shows.

‘Pay what you can’ is designed to help people access the theatre who could not necessarily do so otherwise, it is not ‘pay what you want’ and we ask, if you are able to afford it, that you help the charity continue its work by paying full price (or more if you are really generous!)
