Sherlock Holmes: A Study in Lipstick, Ketchup and Blood – Pitlochry Festival Theatre

Deirdre Davis features in Sherlock Holmes: A Study in Lipstick, Ketchup and Blood, opening at Pitlochry Festival Theatre on 8th June 2022.

In a blasted world, two survivors – a doctor and an actor – pass the time by staging their favourite story salvaged from the flames: A Study in Scarlet, the origin story of Sherlock Holmes. But when tensions arise around casting, more than dead bodies start to surface… 

Pitlochry Festival Theatre has produced this brand-new adaptation by playwright, actor, and BAA Creatives client, Lesley Hart, of A Study in Scarlet, the 1887 Sherlock Holmes origin story. 

Audiences will be enthralled by this riveting play as a famous mystery is brought to life in the amphitheatre, nestled in PFT’s Explorers Garden, within the shadow of Ben-Y-Vrackie.

Runs 08 June-07 July.
