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


The gripping story of the sensational, real life case in which Sir Arthur Conan Doyle found himself playing detective based on Julian Barnes's Booker Prize nominated novel. In 1903, Birmingham solicitor George Edalji was found guilty of a terrible crime and sentenced to seven years' imprisonment. Desperate to prove his innocence, he recruited Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, to help solve his mysterious case and win him a pardon. As absorbing as any Sherlock Holmes mystery, Arthur & George also raises many questions about guilt and innocence, identity, nationality and race.
