Second to Sherlock tells the story of Daniel Calloway, a down on his luck Irish detective trying to make a name for himself in Victorian London. After taking a case that's finally come his way, Calloway gets mixed up in a plot involving an ill-tempered Russian, a bordello proprietor with a peculiar name, Jack the Ripper, and even the world famous detective whose shadow he's trying to escape. Part dashing mystery, part Mel Brooks, and entirely entertaining, Second to Sherlock is a new work that's bound to wow audiences!
