The Sherlock Holmes Society of London reviews Imagination Theatre’s Sherlock Holmes

I’ve welcomed two earlier volumes of Sherlock Holmes scripts from the late Jim French’s Seattle-based company. This new collection shows that the standards of American radio’s golden age live on in Imagination Theatre. Here are fifteen plays, by authors from both sides of the pond, including Jim French, M.J. Elliott, David Marcum, John Hall, Matthew Booth and the excellent leading actors, John Patrick Lowrie and Lawrence Albert. All are exciting, suspenseful, inventive – and faithful to the spirit of the canon, thanks partly to an internal consistency with an agreed chronology. As if the quality of the scripts and the introductory material wasn’t enough, all royalties go to Stepping Stones school, housed at Conan Doyle’s former home, Undershaw.

Imagination Theatre’s Sherlock Holmes is available from all good bookstores including The Strand MagazineAmazon USABarnes and Noble USAAmazon UKWaterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository. In ebook format it is in KindleKoboNook and Apple iBooks (iPad/iPhone).
