FUSION Theatre Company Presents MS. HOLMES AND MS. WATSON - APT. #2B by Kate Hamill. This not-to-be-missed comedy cheerfully desecrates the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and it re-examines the world’s most famous detective story with a bold new feminist lens.
MS. HOLMES AND MS. WATSON – APT. #2B

ABOUT KATE HAMILL
Originally from the farms and fields of upstate New York, Kate Hamill is an award-winning NYC-based actor/playwright. She is deeply passionate about creating new feminist, female-centered classics, both in new plays and in adaptation: stories that center around complicated women. Her work as a playwright celebrates theatricality, often features absurdity, and closely examines social and gender issues - as well as the timeless struggle to reconcile conscience / identity with social pressures. As an actor, she tends to play truth-tellers, oddballs, and misfits.
Kate was named 2017's Playwright of the Year by the Wall Street Journal. She has been one of the 10 most-produced playwrights in the country, 3 seasons running (2017-2020); in both 2017-2018 and 2018-2019, she wrote two of the top 10 most produced plays in the U.S.; many of her plays have been produced internationally.
