A quiet evening at 221B is disrupted by Cecil Forrester, a harried industrialist seeking protection from assailants. Sherlock Holmes is not interested in such mundane matters, until he recognizes the method of attack: an "Oriental Death Touch". He shelters his new client in a locked and bolted room and explores the roof with Dr. Watson, where they are suddenly attacked by a ninja. In the morning Forrester is discovered murdered. An aggressive prosecutor uncovers a connection between the victim and Dr. Watson, and he hypothesizes a method by which Watson could have committed the crime within the locked room. Watson is convicted and condemned. To save his friend, Holmes confesses and, from a cell in Pentonville Prison, the legendary detective solves the baffling murder.
Murder In Baker Street was first presented by Theater By the Blind in New York. It was directed by Ike Schambelan.
