Coming soon to the Kypria International Festival


The Kypria International Festival returns in September and October with a full program of shows across the island, and the next stop is a Greek-language theatrical production starring the famous detective Sherlock Holmes.

Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery is set to take the stage on Saturday and Sunday in Nicosia and September 15 in Limassol. The play is a comedy in which everyone’s favorite detective solves his most famous case. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson are invited to shed light on the mystery of the Hound of Baskerville before a family curse befalls the new heir.

The play is at the origin of Ken Ludwig, winner of the Laurence Olivier and Tony Awards, translated by Anthie Zachariadou for this production and directed by Andreas Araouzos. Araouzos has directed 35 plays while his company Alpha Square is in its tenth year of Greek language productions.

For his next show with a five-member cast, he says: “Sherlock Holmes created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has inspired around 25,000 adaptations for theater, television and film. A name that is the hallmark of a person who is at the same time brilliant, lonely, different, spiritual, stoic, precise, wandering, rationalist, elusive, charming, obsessive, grounded, against superstition and yet immersed in metaphysics, with integrity and individuality. A man who reverses the flow using his logic. An elf ! (the credit for the description goes to the whole team). And if we add to this fertile material the humor and theatricality of our playwright, then our scene becomes rather explosive!
