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.

Is it the family curse or is it murder? Holmes is on the case! Learn More
