This June, three British talents bring one of the world's most beloved duos to Hollywood. Renowned Brit actors John Mawson and Mario Vernazza, team up with the directing talents of one of London's most beloved theatre practitioners, Amir Korangy, head of acting at the prestigious Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London for 14 years.
"The Secret of Sherlock Holmes" by Jeremy Paul is an intelligent and witty forensic thriller, which puts the characters of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson under the great detective's own magnifying glass. Investigating their famous relationship, and their psychological duel with the master criminal Moriarty, it references many of the cases that Sherlock Holmes' fans already know and will intrigue newcomers to discover more.
Originally written in 1988, the play was revived in the UK in 2010 for a national tour, which transferred to London's West End gaining excellent reviews: John Mawson was in that production. The play had been originally devised for Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke, who portrayed the pair for many years on UK TV.
The author Jeremy Paul died in 2011, and this production, performed and dedicated to his memory, has the kind support of his widow.
"The Secret of Sherlock Holmes", by Jeremy Paul will play the Theatre Asylum, 6320 Santa Monica Blvd. Los Angeles 90038, from June 9th through June 24th.
