“Mr. Holmes, I am under such a strain that I shall go mad if it continues. Do you think that your powers could shed a little light in the darkness which surrounds me?” asks Enid Stonor. And with these words, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson find themselves in a race against time to stop the bizarre murders in an eerie country manor.

Step back in time with the East Lynne Theater Company when they present Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “Sherlock Holmes’ Adventure of the Speckled Band “ in the style of a radio broadcast, complete with live sound effects and commercials, just like the Sherlock Holmes’ radio series on NBC that premiered in 1930. After Hours at the Oakland Library invites you to become a part of the “radio audience” .
