“Hamill’s adaptations of the classics are endlessly ingenious … whatever she decides to do, it will be worth seeing.” –The Wall Street Journal’s Playwright of the Year

Fast-paced and wonderfully farcical, this is the bold, feminist take on the iconic crime-fighting duo that you’ve been awaiting. It’s present-day Baker Street and female roommates Holmes and Watson careen from caper to caper. Eventually, they come face-to-face with a supervillain who seems to have all of the answers. Get ready for a quasi-dysfunctional, “Odd Couple” comedy that packs in non-stop laughs and pulls all the punches! 

Developed at PCS’s JAW New Play Festival, 2021.

“Bloody good … if the classic characters are the heart of Apt 2B, then near-broad comedy is its soul.” –Black Bee Buzz

Two women sit on the floor; they are in deep deduction.
