“John Watson, PhD” – Guided Experience

02:00 pm to 03:30 pm
Rainbow Bakery // Downtown Bloomington 

As the Covid-19 pandemic weighs heavily on John Watson, he reflects back on happier times pursuing his doctorate in English at IU and his friendship with the brilliant, young Sherman Hadee. Inspired by heist caper The Red Headed League, this drama casts Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic characters in a new light.

Cardinal’s Walkabout Radio Plays are a safe way to enjoy great storytelling in a unique setting! Each play is set in Bloomington and takes place on a designated walking route. All you need is a smart phone and your favorite headphones, and the world will be transformed around you! Listen to a new scene at each location at the story unfolds. Join us for this new, guided tour experience for small groups. These special group experiences will be led by a docent and guests will be invited to solve puzzles, enjoy some social time, and access bonus content.
