Ken Ludwig's

Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

An adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles

Laughter is "elementary my dear Watson." Ken Ludwig's acclaimed adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 1902 classic mystery, The Hound of the Baskervilles, is full of intrigue and… laughs. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being murdered one by one and the renowned sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, along with his trusted side-kick Dr. Watson, must work feverishly to crack the curse before it dooms the newest heir.

Witness five talented actors playing 40 quirky characters, and venture deep into a world filled with disguises, silly accents and murderous deceit. The journey travels through treacherous Devonshire moors, crowded railway stations, foggy London streets and gloomy baronial mansions. Join the investigation as these intrepid detectives follow leads, unravel clues, hit dead-ends, and zigzag with the story until the shockingly funny conclusion. All is not what it seems. Do you know whodunit?

"Baskerville is a madcap sendup of what you might hold dear about that Doyle classic, done up in the style of The 39 Steps."
— DC Theatre Scene

"…endlessly inventive… I recommend Baskerville unhesitatingly to anyone who loves theatricality… You'll find it here by the barrel-full — at once timeless, and startlingly new… Playwright Ken Ludwig is a master farceur, and his Baskerville takes the comic route every time... it will certainly delight audiences young and old.
— Philadelphia Magazine
