About the Play:

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, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than 40 characters. Does a wild hellhound 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.

The cast includes Joe Drew as Sherlock Holmes, Larry Vinal as Dr. Watson and Ben Whitestone, Andy Tolman and Hannah Gow as everyone else — more than 40 different characters.
