Get your deerstalker cap on—the play’s afoot! From Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor) the award-winning mastermind of mayhem, comes a fast-paced comedy about everyone’s favorite detective solving his most notorious case. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson must crack the mystery of a family curse before it 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 40 characters. If you enjoyed “The 39 Steps” you will love “Baskerville”!

  • 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.

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

  • Ludwig has given us a play that is ingeniously funny and will keep you guessing until the curtain call.
