By Ken Ludwig

Who killed Sir Charles Baskerville? Could the legend of a monstrous supernatural hound be true? Can the case be solved before the family curse dooms its newest heir?

From the award-winning mastermind of mayhem Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor), comes a fast-paced, pulse-pounding comedy like no other. Equal parts adventure and comedy, Baskerville finds Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson attempting to crack their most notorious case.

In this madcap retelling of the ultimate Victorian whodunit, a nimble cast of five takes on nearly forty characters, darting on and off stage almost as quickly as the twists and turns of this delightfully complex plot. As Holmes and Watson race against time to solve the baffling mystery, you’ll find yourself on the edge of your seat, guessing at every twist and turn.

Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.

“The joy in watching [the] witty new play Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery is not in solving the crime bu in the plethora of wildly imaginative characters you meet along the way. By dispensing with British formality, Ken Ludwig has given us a play that is ingeniously funny and will keep you guessing until the curtain call.”

“Written by Tony-winning playwright Ken Ludwig, the new play turns one of Holmes’ most famous mysteries, The Hound of the Baskervilles, on its head. Instead of a heady whodunit, this production is a fast-paced comedy.”
