Arthur Conan Doyle - Man of Mystery Flyer

Three Star Online review from BroadwayBaby

There's something wonderfully uncluttered and unpretentious about this particular wander down literary lane from the Mercators, one of Edinburgh’s oldest amateur drama clubs.

Thanks to John Kelly’s diligent research, and the generally clearly-spoken performance by the cast, you’re bound to learn something new about Doyle.

For those curious to learn something more about the man behind Sherlock Holmes, this is a more entertaining way to accomplish that than just reading a page on Wikipedia.”
