Arthur & George by David Edgar
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Julian Barnes' novel tells the astonishing story of the real life case in which Sir Arthur Conan Doyle found himself playing detective. Birmingham solicitor George Edalji has been found guilty of maiming six horses and sentenced to seven years imprisonment. Desperate to prove his innocence, he recruits the help of crime writer Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, to help solve his case and win him a pardon. This powerful new stage adaptation vividly brings to life the events which made sensational headlines as The Great Wyrley Outrages in 1903.
