Get your deerstalker cap on - the play's afoot in March at the Arts Theatre!
Comedic genius Ken Ludwig 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. In this case Henry Baskerville, the next male heir who arrives from Texas.

The new adaptation calls for three actors to play over 40 roles weaving the story around Holmes and Watson.

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 forty 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.
