Abbotsford Arts Centre
Master sleuth Sherlock Holmes and his trusty side-kick, Watson, must stop a cold-blooded murderer from wiping out the male heirs of the Baskerville family line. Can our heroes discover the truth in time?
From the comedic mastermind behind Lend Me A Tenor comes this hilarious mystery-adventure based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic, The Hound of the Baskervilles.
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.
A mad-cap comedy performed by five actors who play over 40 characters, this mystery-adventure will leave you breathless with excitement and put a smile on your face.
Ken Ludwig has given us a play that is ingeniously funny and will keep you guessing until the curtain call
..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
Baskerville is a madcap sendup of what you might hold dear about that Doyle classic, done up in the style of The 39 Steps
