Riel Theatre Presents: Sherlock Holmes vs. Dracula

Tonight Riel Theatre presents Sherlock Holmes vs. Dracula by Loren D. Estleman. Adapted for radio and directed by Glyn Dearman.

The year is 1890. A ship is discovered adrift off the English coast, its crew missing, its murdered captain lashed to the wheel, and its only passanger is a sinister black dog. This impenetrable mystery is clearly a case for the inimitable Sherlock Holmes, but for the first time in his illustrious career the great detective is baffled. Clearly the crew have been murdered and dumped overboard, but what can account for the captain’s expression of imponderable terror and his acute loss of blood, or the ship’s strange cargo – fifty boxes of earth? The game is afoot, and Sherlock Holmes, aided as ever by the faithful Dr. Watson, finds himself on the trail of no mortal enemy, but the arch-vampire himself – Count Dracula…
