We open with a cozy, homey scene of the Watsons enjoying a quiet evening by the fire. Watson, we imagine, about to nod off while reading the latest medical journal and Mrs. Watson straining her eyes, pulling a needle threaded with colourful embroidery thread through a piece of cloth.

Their quiet evening is shattered by the sudden intruding of Mrs. Watson’s old friend, begging for help. And so begins Dr. Watson’s adventure which leads him to a dark, “…vile alley lurking behind the high wharves which line the north side of the river…”

The Bar of Gold in Upper Swandam Lane holds something quite unexpected.

The adventure continues with Holmes by his side. From London to Lee and back again, using a sponge dipped into a water jug to clean up the case.

The Stormy Petrels of BC will meet via Zoom on Tuesday, February 2 (7:00 pm) to discuss “The Man With the Twisted Lip”
