"A wildly winning world premiere from Lifeline Theatre that injects fresh life into the Arthur Conan Doyle oeuvre"  –Time Out Chicago
 
"The place to be this fall in Chicago is Lifeline Theatre. Christopher M. Walsh's "Miss Holmes" offers a cunning and highly enjoyable gender-bent take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's maddeningly brilliant detective."  –Chicago Tribune
 
"A sterling origin tale of the Sherlock Holmes/Doctor Watson partnership with all the wit, mystery, and dynamism one would expect of Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective; and a decidedly feminist take on that familiar tale."  –Chicago Theatre & Concert Reviews

Miss Sherlock Holmes, possessor of one of the greatest deductive minds of her generation, finds herself regularly incarcerated for behaviors deemed abnormal in a “respectable” lady. Miss Dorothy Watson struggles to make a difference at the only hospital in England that will hire female doctors. These unconventional women, trapped in an era that refuses to accept them, must forge a bond of trust and work together to uncover the secrets surrounding a corrupt police investigator whose wives have a habit of turning up dead. A thrilling murder mystery that re-introduces familiar characters from the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle under a brand new light, in a world premiere production.

A new play inspired by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
By Christopher M. Walsh
Directed by Paul S. Holmquist
