Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

A Comedy by Ken Ludwig

Written by Tony-winning playwright Ken Ludwig, the new play turns one of Holmes’ most famous mysteries, The Hound of the Baskervilles, on its head. Instead of a heady whodunit, this production is a fast-paced comedy.” – Washington City Paper 

 The joy…is not in solving the crime but in the plethora of wildly imaginative characters you meet along the way. … a play that is ingeniously funny and will keep you guessing until the curtain call.”  – Broadway World

 “Comedy gold…[Baskerville] finds the perfect mix of slapstick and thrills” – Theatermania

The play’s afoot! Comedic genius Ken Ludwig transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure. Sherlock Holmes is on the case. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than forty characters. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.
