Join Sherlock in Cape May’s Search for Clues Tour March 15

CAPE MAY — Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s master sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, with his loyal friend Dr. John Watson, ponder evidence in a baffling new mystery for 2014, “Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Unforgiven,” during Cape May’s Sherlock Holmes Weekend, sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC), March 14 through March 16. The weekend event is sold-out, but tickets are still available for Saturday’s Search for Clues Tour.

In this mystery, Holmes accepts an invitation to aid a United States senator in his quest to locate secret documents that, if found by the wrong people, would have disastrous results for many high ranking government officials. For Holmes, the decision to assist the senator brings him face to face with notorious characters from his past. One of these former adversaries knows of a dark secret, a tragic event that has haunted Holmes for years. Holmes must face his demons.

The Search for Clues Tour on March 15, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. is offered as a separate admission of $15. Call 609-884-5404 or 800-275-4278, ext. 115 for more information or visit
