|Seanchai Library's presentation of A SCANDAL IN BOHEMIA last June|
UW Avalumni, Second Life - Seanchai Library will commence Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Sign of Four on Sunday, November 6th at 1:30pm. The entire novel will be presented, with minimal adaptation, in one hour episodes through November 27th at Seanchai's
Baker Street build,
which has been in guest residency at the University
of Washington iSchool in Second Life since June.
The story is set in 1888. The Sign of the Four has a complex plot involving
the Indian Rebellion of 1857, a stolen treasure, and a secret pact among four
convicts ("the Four" of the title) and two corrupt prison guards. It
presents the detective's drug habit and humanizes him in a way that had not
been done in the preceding novel, A Study in Scarlet (1887). It
also introduces Doctor Watson's future wife, Mary Morstan. Kayden Oconnell,
John Morland, and Caledonia Skytower will present the story, voicing the
characters and providing narration, live in voice.
"Conan Doyle wrote for series releases of his work in periodicals of the time, so folks should not be daunted if they miss one episode," encouraged Skytower. Links to the story text, and information on the plot are provided in the 221B Lounge.
will remain on UW
Avalumni until the end of December.
