Tickets for our Halloween show now available!

We are very excited to be performing “Night of the Living Dead” — our adaptation of the classic film — along with an original horror-comedy, “The King in Yellow”, and tickets and reservations are now available!

This show will have three performances in Davis Square on October 20th and 21st (including both a matinée and an evening show on Saturday the 21st), and three performances in Watertown on October 27th, 28th, and a matinée show on Sunday the 29th. How to buy tickets (or make reservations) depends on which performance you’re attending, so head to our Tickets page for the details!

Tickets for A Study in Scarlet now available!

Tickets are now available for our original full-length adaptation of the very first Sherlock Holmes story, A Study in Scarlet. Performances are July 21-22 and 27-29.

A murder has been committed! The body has no wounds, yet the room is covered in blood. Scotland Yard sends for Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson! “There’s the scarlet thread of murder running through the colorless skein of life,” says Sherlock Holmes, “and our duty is to unravel it.”

You can buy tickets in advance, or make a reservation to pay at the door, on our Tickets and Reservations page, and you can go to the show’s page to learn more about the show (including full cast and crew).

We hope to see you at the performance!

Gender-Swapped Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever and Spock's Brain

In June we’ll be reprising two of our Gender-Swapped Star Trek adaptations, and you’ll have three opportunities to see them both! Performances will be June 9th at 7:30pm (with a talkback with the director and cast), June 10th at 2:00pm, and June 10th at 7:30pm, all at Unity Somerville.

In “The City on the Edge of Forever”, Captain Jane Kirk and Ms. Spock must travel back through time into the 1930s, where a delirious Doctor McCoy has drastically changed the course of history — a change that seems to involve a man who has captivated Kirk. Will she make the difficult choice needed to preserve the past and save the future?

In “Spock’s Brain”, after an encounter with a mysterious, beautiful man from an advanced starship, Spock’s brain has gone missing! McCoy can keep her body alive for now, but time is running out — can Kirk and her landing party find the mysterious man and save Spock before it’s too late?

Read more about the performances here! Attendance is free! (Donations are appreciated.)

Watch City Steampunk Festival on, but HVAC problems have cancelled our performance

Cancelled: Sadly, due to HVAC problems at the Waltham Public Library, all events there have had to be cancelled this weekend, and we can no longer perform “The Final Problem” on Saturday, May 13th, as planned. However, the rest of Watch City Steampunk Festival is still happening, and PMRP very much encourages you still to attend. I have it on good authority that Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, both of whom are good friends of PMRP, will be perambulating the festival, and as the Festival is a free event, they will be waiving their usual fee, should you have any mysteries that need investigation.
