We received the following appeal from Mr. Robert DeFreest, who is promoting a stylized play reading, as noted.
ATTENTION ALL SHERLOCK HOLMES and CHARLES DICKENS DEVOTEES!
I have joined forces with Paul-Felix Montez, an award winning writer and visual artist to see his play, SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE EDWIN DROOD MYSTERY produced as a stylized play reading. We are targeting all the Holmes websites throughout the world (numbering in the thousands) as well as literary circles in order to raise money for this brilliant project. Already we have over 20 products for sale on Zazzle, an on line merchandising company. They are producing posters, mugs, beer steins, greeting cards, mouse pads, etc. featuring Mr. Montez’s amazing design work. All proceeds of sales will be funneled directly into the Sherlock Project. We have a presence on YouTube with a teaser of the project as well, which can be embedded into a website with a click. The immediate goal is to have a highly stylized staged reading of the play videotaped and sent to theatrical agents, producers, and other professionals in New York, LA, London, Canada, and Europe. Mr. Montez has worked
extensively for years as a writer, actor and set designer in New York (Broadway, Off Broadway) and Hollywood. Please visit our web site by clicking on the link shown. Any donation no matter how small, will be a tremendous help in seeing this dream realized. The link is http://sherlockproject.blogspot.com/. Thank you for your time and consideration.
