STC Theatre opens 2018-2019 season with Miss Holmes

South Texas College (STC) Theatre kicks off its 2018-2019 season this month with Christopher M. Walsh’s play, Miss Holmes, inspired by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

The production will run from Oct. 18-20 at 8 p.m., and will include a matinee at 2 p.m. on Oct. 21. Performances will take place at STC’s Copper Center for Communication Arts Black Box Studio Theatre located at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd. in McAllen.

Miss Holmes is a “fan fiction” which re-examines the Victorian world of Holmes and Watson by exploring the added obstacles faced by these two iconic characters if they were women.

When an anonymous note sends a newlywed wife looking for help, Miss Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Dorothy Watson work to uncover the secrets surrounding a corrupt police inspector, but this Holmes and Watson face far greater challenges than bringing the criminal to justice. Miss Holmes possesses one of the greatest deductive minds of her generation, but she chafes at the restraints imposed upon her by society. Dr. Watson struggles to make a difference at the only hospital in London that will hire female doctors.

General admission tickets cost $5. Tickets can be purchased one hour before the performance at the box office, or in advance online at https://secure.touchnet.com/C20193_ustores/web/store_main.jsp?STOREID=13.
