Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery
Galloway, NJ– Do you know whodunit? Audiences will be rolling in the aisles when Ken Ludwig's “Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery,” an adaptation and witty sendup of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's “The Hound of the Baskervilles,” hits the Stockton Performing Arts Center stage on Feb. 10.
Witness five talented actors playing 40 quirky characters, and venture deep into a world filled with disguises, silly accents and murderous deceit. The journey travels through treacherous Devonshire moors, crowded railway stations, foggy London streets and gloomy baronial mansions.
Ken Ludwig's acclaimed adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 1902 classic mystery, “The Hound of the Baskervilles,” is full of intrigue and laughs. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being murdered one by one and the renowned sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, along with his trusted side-kick Dr. Watson, must work feverishly to crack the curse before it dooms the newest heir.
DC Theatre Scene wrote: “Baskerville is a madcap sendup of what you might hold dear about that Doyle classic, done up in the style of The 39 Steps.”
