The creator of the world’s greatest detective turns sleuth.

In Victorian England, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the man behind Sherlock Holmes, is recruited to solve a mysterious case of his own.

Solicitor George Edalji has been convicted of a terrible crime and is desperate to prove his innocence. After his release from prison he seeks the help of the expert crime writer to win him a pardon.

This powerful new stage adaptation based on Julian Barnes’ bestselling semi-fictional novel, vividly brings to life the events of a hundred years ago that made sensational headlines as The Great Wyrley Outrages.

As gripping as any of Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes mysteries, Arthur and George raises questions about guilt and innocence, identity, nationality and race.
