Patti Coyle and her intrepid actors have done it again! Their new play, direct from London, is a juicy mystery with plot twists that will thrill fans of Sherlock Holmes. The St. Helena High School drama group has succeeded in bringing to life the blockbuster success from London’s National Theatre, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time.”

There has been a murder and Christopher is out to solve the case. Wrinkles in this plot will pull at your heart and you will find yourself cheering for Christopher, an autistic high school kid who sees the world differently from his companions. His vision, and the actor’s vivid portrayal of the modern London will keep you at the edge of your seat! You will cheer for Christopher and shed a tear or two along the way the spectacular conclusion.

Coyle’s daring play succeeds in elevating the level of drama in the Napa Valley. Several British fans of the original are astounded that the kids have succeeded in reproducing the London experience right here in Napa. Once again, Coyle has shown what high school students can accomplish when given the reigns on this spectacular $15 million facility. Don’t miss the dramatic event of the fall!
