A young man disappears just before his wedding, and his fiancée has already given back her wedding dress

So when a gruesome discovery is made in the Ice Palace, there's only one man for the job ...

Sherlock Holmes is summoned to solve a mystery that's far from elementary

With the help of trusty Watson and Irish barkeep Shadwell Rafferty, it's up to Holmes to track a cold-blooded killer from the icy streets of St. Paul to the frozen Mississippi River

Large Mixed Cast or M7,F2 (doubling)


" a smart, funny, and entertaining mystery " ~

" there are generous servings of false leads, mistaken identities, plot twists, double dealings, mysterious unsigned notes, smoking pistols, sharpened knives, and witty repartee. Playwright Hatcher, with a tip of the hat to novelist Millett, has created a dandy joy ride that keeps the audience guessing not only who did it, but why and how and making sure that the pleasure of the game is drawn out to the very end, with every scene adding a piece to the puzzle, but nothing tipping the author's hand sharp dialogue skillful writing" ~
