Ansonia Library - Sponsored by the Friends of the Ansonia Library
Saturday, October 25

Fresh from their summer run at Gillette Castle State Park, the Ansonia Library is proud to present the East Haddam Stage Company and their production of William Gillette's actual 1930 radio script of one of the first Sherlock Holmes dramas ever broadcast via radio, Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Speckled Band. This 'sketch' as Gillette called it was originally written by Edith Meiser but extensively edited by Gillette himself. He knew Sherlock like no other actor at that time, having created and played the detective for many years on stages all over the world. He would go on to do at least two other radio broadcasts portraying England's most famous sleuth (1933 and 1935). Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Speckled Band was originally broadcast in NY City on October 20th 1930. In this mystery drama production 4 actors portray 7 characters, and of course it includes sound effects! With an introduction by EHSCO’s Producing Artistic
Director, Kandie Carle, the presentation runs one hour, including Q &A with the audience. We hope you enjoy stepping back in time and becoming part of our 'studio audience’. More info on the show can be found at http://www.EHSCO.org.

There is no charge for the show, but due to limited seating registration is required. Please call the Ansonia Library at 203-734-6275 to reserve your seat by Thursday, Oct. 23. It is suggested that children under 12 not attend due to the nature of the performance.
