SHERLOCK HOLMES
by
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
and
William Gillette

"The Napoleon of Crime," Prof. Moriarity, plots with would-be blackmailers to have Holmes killed. And the normally love-proof Holmes falls for an exceptional woman. The play was co-authored by the American matinee idol William Gillette, who played the title sleuth. A smash hit from the beginning, the play remained in Gillette’s repertoire until he retired more than 30 years after its 1889 premiere.
