By Ken Ludwig
based on the novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Ken Ludwig’s transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure.
Who killed Sir Charles Baskerville? Is there truth to the legend of a supernatural hound? This certainly sounds like a case for the world’s most famous detective! In this fast-paced comedy mystery, the action moves from the shady streets of London to the haunted moors of Devonshire.
Join Sherlock Holmes & Dr. Watson as they try to escape a dizzying web of clues, disguises, and deceit as they are supported by three actors who portray more than 40 characters in a delightful mix of slapstick and adventure – demanding impossible quick changes, a Downtown Abbey’s worth of British dialects, and athletic physical comedy.
