The Valley of Fear
July 11 - July 20 | Free Theatre | Poker Flats Field
In 1987, WTF launched the popular outdoor Free Theatre with a production of A Study in Scarlet, the first saga in the Sherlock Holmes series.
Twenty-five years later, the legendary sleuth is back in this exciting new theatrical version of Conan Doyle’s final novel, The Valley of Fear, adapted by Free Theatre’s original scribe, playwright Steve Lawson.
This two-act play shows Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson at their witty best— investigating a case of murder that is baffling Scotland Yard. First, we travel with the duo to an English country estate to pick up clues and crack the case. We then dig deep into this mystery’s origins in America – illuminating a tale of violence and fear in Pennsylvania’s coal country, where one man’s life hangs perilously between ruin and redemption.
