Casting Call For Role Of Abdul Karim
Auditions October 16 at 11am
Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily by Katie Forgette
Ross Valley Players is looking for a South Asian actor to play the role of Abdul Karim in “Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily” by Katie Forgette. Abdul Karim was a real person and confidante to Queen Victoria. It is also possible for the actor playing Karim to play another role too: a working class Cockney named John Smythe, but it is not necessary.
Rehearsals begin November 22 with a holiday break. The show opens January 21 and closes February 20, 2022. All rehearsals and performances are at the Barn theater in Ross, CA.
Ross Valley Players is a fully vaccinated community. Actors receive $400 for travel expenses.

About the Play
“The wit of Oscar Wilde meets the cunning of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle when Wilde brings his dear friend, Lillie Langtry, to Baker Street. Someone has stolen the highly intimate letters Lily exchanged with the Prince of Wales, and now she is being blackmailed. Only Holmes can solve the case, going so far as to disguise himself as an early version of Lady Bracknell from Wilde’s latest play, The Importance of Being Forthright, while Watson falls head-over-heels for the Jersey Lily and a wicked professor attempts to bring the Crown to its knees.” Playscripts, Inc.
