Get to know: partners in crime Jay Baruchel and Karl Graboshas!
Montreal actor Jay Baruchel will play the title role in Greg Kramer’s original adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic detective tales. With an impressive roster of Hollywood blockbusters to his name such as How to Train Your Dragon, Million Dollar Baby, Knocked Up, Tropic Thunder and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Baruchel brings his distinctive energy and talent to this world premiere. Playing the detective’s faithful associate and biographer Dr. John Watson is Karl Graboshas, who appeared alongside Baruchel in the cult hockey film Goon. Some of you may remember him from our productions of Death and Taxes (2005) and Inherit the Wind (2009). The extraordinary dynamic between both actors promises to be one of the highlights of the production!

Sherlock Holmes co-stars include Gemma James-Smith, Kyle Gatehouse, Graham Cuthbertson, Trent Pardy, Patrick Costello, Deena Aziz, Mary Harvey, Chip Chuipka, and Matthew Gagnon.
