Season 15: Mainstage Plays & Musicals

January 24 - February 18, 2024


New England Premiere!

Directed by Kelly O'Donnell

An irreverent, darkly comic, modern take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous sleuth and sidekick, this fast-paced romp re-examines the world’s most famous detective story with a bold new feminist lens. In this highly theatrical, small-cast escapade, oddball female roommates Sherlock (yes, it’s also a girl’s name—wait, is it a girl’s name? Is it even a name?) Holmes & Joan Watson join forces to emerge from pandemic fog as a deeply codependent, quasi-dysfunctional Odd Couple adventure duo—solving mysteries and kicking butts, until they come face to face with a villain who seems to have all of the answers.

“Apt. 2B is sharp, playful, and moves at a rapid-fire pace… [It] brings poignancy and humor to the stories of Sherlock Holmes…." -Portland Monthly

“Hamill’s new play gives the stories refresh in the way of Lucy and Ethel, Cagney and Lacey or Rizzoli and Isles." - Arts ATL
