Help Solve a New Case with Sherlock and Watson During Sherlock Holmes Weekend in Cape May

CAPE MAY – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s master sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, with his loyal friend Dr. John Watson, return to follow the clues in a baffling new mystery for 2017, “Sherlock Holmes and The Case of The Discarded Woman,” written by John K Alvarez, playwright. Cape May’s Sherlock Holmes Weekend is held at the historic Inn of Cape May, 7 Ocean St., Cape May, and sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC), from Friday, March 17 through Sunday, March 19:

Tick, tock goes the clock.
The detectives will sleuth
When they hear a knock.
A woman is lost.
Death comes at dawn.
Who’s the real victim?
The game is on.

Stalk the gaslit streets in search of clues and compete for the $250 grand prize and a variety of other valuable gifts as you attempt to solve the mystery. Full weekend packages are available at $200 per couple or $105 per person and include the welcome reception, performances, tour, luncheon and gift.
