The Crucifer of Blood

Play it cool at the ExxonMobil Summer Chills whodunit

At the Alley Theatre’s The Crucifer of Blood, an ExxonMobil Summer Chills production, Holmes and his sidekick Watson are busy with a mysterious case involving a cursed treasure chest from exotic Victorian India. The story, adapted by Paul Giovanni from Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Sign of Four, is full of the creepiness those 19th-century types seem to have adored, such as an opium den, drug-laced tea, blood oaths and curses. The kind of spooky fog that looks hokey on TV will send a shiver up your spine in a darkened theater. 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays, 2:30 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Sundays. Through August 16. 615 Texas. For information, call 713-220-5700 or visit www.alleytheatre.org. $21 to $49.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: July 15. Continues through Aug. 16, 2009
