Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville! A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

Posted on Jun 29, 18 in Shows

Written by Ken Ludwig



Get your deerstalker cap on — the play’s afoot! Comedic genius Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure. Sherlock Holmes is on the case. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir.

Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than forty characters. Does a wild hell-hound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.

Director, Will Taylor, directed last season’s Scapino and TLP is happy to have him back helming this hilarious farce.

Starring in this production are TLP’s 2018 Resident Company members, Alex Rudd, Max Bahneman, James Tweedale and Erin Stapleton
