A young woman tragically dies under mysterious circumstances on the eve of her wedding. A low whistle, a heavy metallic clang. No reason for her death is ever discovered.

Her twin sister is distraught but life must go on and her own wedding is approaching. And then late at night, she hears a low whistle in the dark....

This adaptation remains faithful to the original spine tingling short story from Conan Doyle. The atmosphere of the Genesian Theatre will serve to bring the gothic thrill to life in this Australian premiere of a new adaptation from British playwright Max Gee.

Dr John Watson (Male, 40s during frame narrative and late 20s during the tale - Holmes' companion and chronicler)

Julia Stoner/Gypsy Julia (Female, 18-20 - twin sister of Helen, a memory, a ghost?)
