A Far from Elementary Comedy at Castle Hill

A Far from Elementary Comedy at Castle Hill

Castle Hill Players present Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery at the Pavilion Theatre from 17 November to 9 December, 2023, written by Ken Ludwig and directed by Jason Spindlow.

Get your deerstalker cap on—the play’s afoot! Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Shakespeare in Hollywood) transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure with Castle Hill Players’ final play of the season.

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 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.

A classic mystery to die for, which you'll laugh trying to solve with Holmes and Watson.
