But, when a grown-up Tiny Tim asks Holmes to investigate the death of one Ebenezer Scrooge, the Great Detective must use his gifts to solve a Dickens of a mystery! Six actors take on the beloved characters (note plural) of Arthur Conan Doyle and Charles Dickens in this adventure for all ages. Are you up for the challenge? Character Breakdown: • Sherlock Holmes It is three Christmases since Holmes’ infamous confrontation with Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls, and the detective has become a miser himself, with little appetite for solving crimes. Then he runs into a now grown up Tiny Tim, who persuades him to investigate the mysterious death of Ebenezer Scrooge. Holmes must face his own ghosts to solve the case. • Ebenezer Scrooge The miserly protagonist of Dickens’ novel, Ebenezer Scrooge is first described as a “squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner”. He has no time or patience for Christmas, until one fateful year when the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future teach him the error of his ways. In this play, several years have passed since that night, and having kept Christmas well and become a generous benefactor to ‘Tiny’ Tim Cratchit, he has passed away under strange circumstances. His spectre reappears to guide Holmes on his journey to the truth. • Timothy Cratchit and Others The ailing ‘Tiny Tim’ from Dickens’ story, Timothy Cratchit is now a respected but impoverished doctor at the struggling St Bernard’s Hospital for Children. He’s concerned about the nature of his friend Scrooge’s death, and entreats Holmes to take on the case. • The Countess and Others Sherlock’s old-flame, Irene Adler, who shows up years later as The Countess of Morcar. • Emma Wiggins and Others Emma Wiggins comes to Sherlock with the news that the kindly old Scrooge has been murdered and that her father, Scrooge’s attendant, has been charged with stealing the Blue Carbuncle. Sherlock’s old-flame, Irene Adler, who shows up, The Countess of Morcar, is none other than Irene Adler, who appears in the Holmes story, ‘A Scandal in Bohemia’. Although she appears in just one story, besting Holmes and disappearing with her new husband and an incriminating photo of herself and the King of Bohemia, she fascinates the detective and is mentioned in other stories. In ‘A Sherlock Carol’ she shows up again, now a countess, and is portrayed as an old flame of Holmes’. • Dr. Watson and Others Sherlock Holmes’ faithful friend and the narrator of the Holmes stories. He’s intelligent, curious and patient, putting up with Holmes’ frequent depressive episodes and helping him back on his feet. In the play, Watson has married Mary Morstan and is somewhat estranged from the detective since the Reichenbach Falls confrontation. He also has another identity, which is revealed at the end.
