The charity funds innovative healthcare, medical, and cancer research across Barts Health NHS Trust. Their hospitals serve Europe’s most diverse communities. From the financial districts of the City and Canary Wharf so to cover some of the UK’s most deprived areas.

"The project was coincidentally driven by one of the main characters, Dr Watson due to his fictional presence. In the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories mention him as resident of the hospital in the 1800’s. Certainly it seemed fitting that we recognize the hospital's incredible work on cancer research. As a result, we earmarked some of the proceeds from the production, said DeGaetano. “Furthermore, our cast made an amazing team effort to put the production together in such a short amount of time."

Produced by Irish Theatre Presents. Above all, the talented London cast for the production brought to life the iconic characters in a quick turnaround on stage. As the stories grow in intensity as it was up to Holmes, Dr. Watson, and the audience to immediately unravel the mysteries." Based in part from the career writings of Holmes’ long time friend Dr. Watson. The plays are homage to Conan Doyle's iconic characters, brought to life in just 10 to 18 minutes in length.

Director, John DeGaetano has been in musical theatre most of his life.
