Murder and Sherlock Holmes fandom collide in this true crime story

Why See Mysterious Circumstances?



This world premiere play tells the unbelievable true story of Richard Lancelyn Green, a world renowned expert on the works of Arthur Conan Doyle, who was found dead in his apartment. The subsequent investigation revealed uncanny similarities between the case and the plot of a Sherlock Holmes mystery. Based on a New Yorker article by the celebrated journalist David Grann (The Killers of Flower Moon, The Lost City of Z), and written by Michael Mitnick, Mysterious Circumstances draws you into a world where truth may very well be stranger than fiction. Matt Shakman directs.
