A NEW Sherlock Holmes adventure is to have its world premiere in Henley.
The play, called Sherlock Holmes and the Canary Girls, will be performed for 10 nights at the Kenton Theatre and then probably transfer to the West End.
It is being co-produced by Ed Simons, chairman of the Kenton trustees, and his friend and long-time collaborator Kent Walwin. They have been producing films together for 25 years.
The play is set in London in 1916, almost 30 years after the Jack the Ripper murders.
Holmes and his assistant Dr Watson are enlisted by the Government to investigate a series of killings which, if left unsolved, could cost Britain the war.
