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

A compelling production of an EXCELLENT script. The cast was solid, though the central character of Brooke was miscast with an actress rather too young for the role (the actor playing her younger brother comes across as older) - there is no way she was even born in the 70's, let alone an adolescent back then. Nevertheless, she did a credible job in a thankless role - that of a head-strong (and relentlessly unpleasant) daughter returning home to drop a bomb-shell on her family. The rest of the cast were all terrific in their more nuanced portrayals of characters with multiple dimensions. Definitely worth the trip (and the set is one of the most gorgeous creations I've seen on-stage in some time).
This show contains adult language.
Post-show discussions take place on Wednesdays during the regular run.
