Gregory Boyd, artistic director of the Houston theatre, directs the thriller that runs July 15-Aug. 16 on the Hubbard Stage. Summer Chills offers theatergoers the opportunity to catch an Alley production for less, with tickets beginning at $21.
Waite will star as Sherlock Holmes, opposite Hutchison as Watson, in a cast of Alley Theatre resident company actors including Jeffrey Bean as Major Alistair Ross, James Belcher as Mohammed Singh/Hopkins/Mordecai Smith, James Black as Captain Neville St. Claire, Elizabeth Bunch as Irene St. Claire, Justin Doran as Wali Dad/Birdy Johnson, Philip Lehl as Jonathan Small and John Tyson as Durga Dass/Inspector Lestrade.
According to press notes, "two murders and a treasure of jewels lead to a blood oath and an uncanny mystery that the master detective must solve before more fall victim. Amid fog-shrouded London, Holmes and Watson confront danger and an ingenious villain intent on making a curse come true."
The production will feature scenic design by Kevin Rigdon, costume design by Blair Gulledge, lighting design by Rui Rita, sound design by Pierre Dupree and dramaturg Lauren Halvorsen.
