Sherlock Holmes tackles a global conspiracy in the latest Chorley Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society (CADOS) production at Chorley Little Theatre.

In The Final Problem, the famous detective is brought right into the modern world as he faces the threat of global terrorism and international criminals.

Based on two Arthur Conan Doyle stories, the play sees Sherlock Holmes meet the mysterious Irene Adler and come face-to-face with murderous Moriarty, right.

CADOS are following up their hit 2013 play The Hound Of The Baskervilles.

That show won best director for Mark Jones, best play, best staging and best actor at the NODA awards for amateur dramatic groups. Dave Reid returns to his award-winning role as Sherlock, with Siobhan Edge as housekeeper Mrs Hudson and Danny Almond as John Watson.

As the play begins, Watson has just married so Holmes finds himself getting restless and taking on ever more dangerous cases.

Given a job by his brother Mycroft (David Walker) he meets the mysterious Adler (Zoe Jones), before a deadly rendezvous at the Reichenbach Falls with Professor Moriarty (Ashley Hambrook).

The production takes audiences on a nail-biting journey from London to the Swiss Alps.

Written and directed by Mark Jones, the production is full of thrills and humour. With adult themes, it is suggested for ages 15 and over.

The play runs from Monday until Saturday, June 20, with tickets costing £6 for the first three nights then £8.
