London-based theatre company Tacit Theatre returns to Southwark Playhouse with a brand new adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective classic.

Featuring an original score and live music, A Study In Scarlet follows a young and ambitious Sherlock Holmes at the start of his career as he meets a war-ravaged Watson who has been discharged from the army after the horrors of the Afghan war.

When a gruesome discovery in a derelict house in Camberwell sends them on a journey of intrigue and revenge, the duo is led through the murky underbelly of Victorian London to a Mormon settlement in Utah.
