The Blue Carbuncle - Sherlockian Holiday playreading/fundrais­er for Undershaw

  • Dec 8, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Details are now available.  This event will be a performance, and unlike other Meetups we have had, you must reserve in advance and donate (or use a comp).   Reservations must be made  on Brown Paper Tickets and your RSVP here  at does NOT get you in.  


Here's what you'll get:

You'll see a world premiere of an adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's THE BLUE CARBUNCLE  performed as a staged reading by professional actors.

You'll enter and be offered some hot spiced cider.  Then  you'll be seated in a 90 seat concert hall, where opera singer Christine Sofiane will sing some of Holmes' favorite composers and a medley of Christmas tunes.  Next, host and curator Les Klinger will do a short lecture,  This is followed by the staged reading - a thirty minute  dramatization of Conan Doyle's famous Christmas Sherlock Holmes story -The Blue Carbuncle.

Following this you'll share refreshments  with the cast. 

This is the second production of the Sherlock Holmes in Brentwood playreading series and the first sold out and had a repeat performance.  Because of the holidays, this play will be one time only.

Don't miss it!


Reservations are taken with donations at $20 and  up,  but ten free and ten $15 tickets have been reserved for Sherlock Breakfast Club members.  First come first served.

Want to get the Breakfast Club discount or comp?   BE QUICK. There are 10 comps and 10 discounts  available.

FIRST:  Email me at [masked] for the password.

SECOND:  Once you have the password click this link.  There see all the details - what/where/when.

THIRD:  Click the "GET TICKETS" orange button at the top.

FOURTH:  Below the listed ticket prices, there are turquoise letters regarding entering a password.  Click them and fill in the password I give you.

Then you can get your comp ticket if there are some left.  One per member, please. 

If no comp tickets are left, you can still get a discount.  You'll see the Sherlock Breakfast club reservations listed at $15, which is $5 less than the suggested donation. 

Hope you'll join us!

But... if you find yourself able to donate a bit more, please do so....

Why?  Because it's a fundraiser to save Arthur Conan Doyle's crumbling estate, Undershaw, and turn it into a heritage center.  A true Sherlockian cause. And so worth it!

Reservations are open now.     Our regular meetups will resume in late January...Hope to see you at this one!

    From the selection of the music, to the story by Leslie Kliger, to the very funny reading of the Blue Carbuncle, it was a light-hearted evening that ended with me driving home with a smile.
