"The question is the sequence of events leading from the rare gem, the Blue Carbuncle, at one end, to the stomach of a goose at the other,” says Sherlock Holmes to Dr. Watson as they begin an investigation that might save an innocent man from prison. So begins another radio-style mystery! Produced with live sound effects and commercials just like the radio shows from the 1930’s, “The Blue Carbuncle” is based on the story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, adapted by Craig Wichman, founder and producer of Quicksilver Radio Theater. Before television and the Internet, people sat eagerly by the radio to hear the latest dramas, comedies, and news. Many radio shows were performed in front of live audiences at the same time they were sent across the "airways."
5 Star Review on TripAdvisor by TravelingAmos While a play consisting of actors speaking into microphones as if performing for radio may sound boring, this was far from it. We were here during Sherlock Holmes Weekend in November, and we added this to the overall experience. The quality of the acting here was first-rate! We were captivated throughout the roughly one-hour long performance. The sound engineer was perhaps the most interesting part as he simulated sounds for fire, wind, water, and other various sounds right in front of us as the actors spoke into the microphone. If you come to Cape May for Sherlock Holmes Weekend in the spring or fall, a visit here is a must!
