Ken Ludwig's Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

Written by Ken Ludwig
Directed by Brendon Fox

Run time: 2 hours | Intermission: 15 minutes
Advisory: Mild sexual innuendo

The hunting and haunting of the heir to the Baskerville fortune proves the most puzzling—and dangerous!—case in the illustrious careers of Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson. Cleveland favorite Ken Ludwig is back with his madcap adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic mystery, transforming The Hound of the Baskervilles into an all-out comedic theatrical adventure. Full of humor, horror, and plenty of stage magic, five actors play nearly 40 roles in this kooky and spooky caper that will have you howling with laughter.
