Suspense and laughter share the stage in this adaptation of the popular Sherlock Holmes tale, The Hound of the Baskervilles. Two British theater vets bring their witty sensibility to this classic Victorian whodunit about an attempted murder tied to the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound. The famous detective and his trusty sidekick Dr. Watson travel to the misty, moody moors of England's West Country where the Baskerville family patriarch has died under mysterious and chilling circumstances and his nephew and heir, Sir Henry, may be next. Is it the family curse or is it murder? Holmes is on the case! Learn More

This was the first Theatre Works play I really enjoyed in a long time. The play was interesting with humor and pathos and well-written. The acting was very good. I did like all of the multi-media presentations going on in the background. It supported the sense of an over-stimulated world.

Could it be Attention Deficit Disorder? And what if it is?</p> <p>Honest, insightful, and hilariously offbeat, this LA/Ashland hit by the author of Living Out is a dramedy for our times, texting for answers in a world too frazzled to text back.</p>
