Baskerville, February 2-4, from 7:30 p.m.
Get your deerstalker cap on — the play’s afoot! Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic “The Hound of the Baskervilles” into a murderously funny adventure. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one, and Sherlock Holmes is on the case. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir.  Watch as the 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 the heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be. Click this link for more details.
