The existence of a mill at Bagnor set in the beautiful Berkshire countryside is recorded in the Domesday Book and the building has served as a corn mill and a paper mill for hundreds of years with its beautiful tithe barn alongside. It was converted into a theatre in the early 1960's and the first short professional season opened in 1967. In recent years, the Watermill has progressed into the top league of regional theatres with many shows produced there transferring to London or touring throughout the UK or overseas.

Sherlock’s Last Case
By Charles Marowitz
Employing his powers of deduction and the assurance that he’s always right, Holmes and Watson embark on a bizarre and fascinating case that eventually brings Holmes face-to-face with his avenger. Is this the end of the most famous detective in the world? The answer, my dear Watson, is elementary. True to the spirit of Conan-Doyle’s original Sherlock novels, this black comedy has all the suspense and intrigue of a great detective story whilst poking gentle fun at the super sleuth’s eccentric personality.
