The first new Shakespeare play in centuries

On Audio – A Scandal in Nova Alba: Stage-Play Version

Steve White stars in the first new Shakespeare play for four hundred years.

The King of Nova Alba, in this new stage-play version of the story, approaches Sherlock Holmes to discover who killed the king’s predecessor.

Shakespeare wrote comedies, tragedies, and histories, but he never got around to writing a whodunit, and this mixture of the Bard and Baker Street fills the gap in his oeuvre. The King of Nova Alba approaches Sherlock Holmes. The current king’s predecessor on the Nova Alban throne, King Duncan, came to a violent end, and Holmes’ petitioner is the prime suspect. He wants Sherlock Holmes to find the true killer. There is many a twist in a familiar tale, before Holmes reveals the utterly unexpected truth. Two years after Delos’ publication of the story version of “A Scandal in Nova Alba”, here it is at last as a stage-play.

The Hound of The Baskervilles: A Sherlock Holmes Play

“The Hound of Baskervilles doesn’t easily lend itself to the theatre, but dramatists seem unable to resist the challenge. I’ve not had the chance to see it performed, but Simon Corble’s play is pretty close to the top of my list of favourites. It was written to be performed out of doors, with the audience following the actors from place to place. Mr Corble boldly adapts the story rather than simply dramatising, and the result is clever, witty, exciting – and refreshingly intelligent. David Stuart Davies contributes an appreciative foreword, and the text is enhanced by a dozen photographs and superb atmospheric cover, using photos taken during a production at Brimham Rocks in North Yorkshire.”  – The Sherlock Holmes Society of London

Peter Blau reviews ‘The Hound of The Baskervilles’ stage adaptation by Simon Corble.

“Simon Corble’s two-act play “The Hound of the Baskervilles” was first per formed in and outdoor venue in Britain in 1995, and the script’s now available (London: MX Publishing); Corble’s introduction explains how the play came to be written, and why it differs from the book.  It can be interesting indeed to read scripts when you have already read the story.”
