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

West Coast Premiere
From the writer of the mega-hit film and musical Billy Elliot comes another absorbing London/Broadway success! A funny play that asks big questions, it tells the rousing, true story of a hardscrabble group of 1930s miners who take up painting and become sensations of the British art world. Their exhilarating journey from pit to pinnacle overflows with spirit and laughter, as rich and intriguing as the art it unveils.
