Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson must crack the mystery before the family curse dooms its newest heir. Watch as these intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, and deceit, as five actors portray more than 40 characters.
“The combination of a Sherlock Holmes mystery and a Ken Ludwig comedy makes for an irresistibly entertaining evening,” shares Director Laura Kepley. “This play is a joyful and hilarious celebration of theatricality and collaboration that will have the audience laughing, gasping, and then back to laughing. As an artistic director, I have programmed and produced five plays by Ken Ludwig and I am delighted to be directing KEN LUDWIG’S BASKERVILLE at Everyman Theatre with their stellar resident company of actors and designers.”
“Ken brings to life this story of murder and mayhem in a suspenseful and hilarious way that’s perfect for the entire family,” Artistic Director Vincent M. Lancisi explains. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring this witty whodunit to the Everyman stage this holiday season.”
