Season 1, Episode 2: Strade and Holmes: "Holmes to Rent"
In a time when the law would not allow women to become detectives, Summer Holmes applies as secretary to Boston's least-successful Private Eye: Gulliver Strade. When his father was murdered by a notorious crime family, Strade quit his promising legal career and hung out his shingle as a detective. Now all he needs is his first client... Coincidentally enough, that very day Amanda Neeley hires them to track down her brother -- who got on a plane to London and vanished before it arrived! It's mystery and humor in a Sherlockian vein as Strade and Holmes work to unravel a twisted plot!
Recorded live at Bozeman, Montana's Equinox Theatre, now known as the Verge Theater on June 25, 2011! What you hear is what the audience heard with no overdubs and minimal post-production to try to make it comfortable to your ears! In this first season, we had not yet made the decision to have entirely analog effects, but Sound Impresario Rob Robinson did activate each one live on stage!
