Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

April 12 - 28, 2019

Cantey V. Sutton Theatre (Reserved Seating)

The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being eliminated one by one. To find their ingenious killer, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. 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, and elaborate disguises. Full of humor, horror, and plenty of stage magic, this kooky and spooky caper will have you howling with laughter.

“Meeting up with Mary Roland as Sherlock Holmes and Laurel Ullman as Dr. Watson on a local stage is a treat not to be missed. ” – Triangle Arts & Entertainment

“Guest director Jeremy Skidmore has mapped out the intricate paths that the three actors playing multiple parts must take to make their frenetic exits and lightning-quick re-entrances as different characters with different costumes, wigs, and accessories.” – CVNC

“Smart ‘Sherlock’ Debunks Preconceived Notions” – RDU On Stage

“Costume designer Jenny Mitchell and a quartet of dressers (Danielle Welch, Heather Carithers, Katie Huffman, and Sarah Spagnoli) are actually brought out for bows for their split-second changes. It makes for a breathless, funny, and improbably cinematic romp through a venerable melodrama.” – INDY Week
