BWW Preview: Austin Playhouse Presents: BASKERVILLE By Ken Ludwig, 11/18


The game's afoot!

Austin Playhouse produces the Texas premiere of a famous Sherlockian tale, Ken Ludwig's BASKERVILLE, A Sherlock Holmes Mystery. This inventive new adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Hound of the Baskervilles" finds the intrepid Holmes and his loyal companion Watson battling their most notorious mystery amid foggy London streets and the foreboding moors of the English countryside. When a mythical hellhound begins prowling in the mists, the great detective must use every ounce of his legendary wit and deductive power to crack the case before a family curse dooms its newest heir.

With a cast of 5 actors juggling over 40 roles, Baskerville will be a fast-paced, pulse-pounding, and murderously funny ride.

Jason Newman once again takes on the role of Sherlock Holmes with Ben Wolfe as his Watson. They're joined by Marie Fahlgren as Actress One, and the rest of the cast will be announced soon! BASKERVILLE is directed by Don Toner with set design by Mike Toner, costume design by Buffy Manners, lighting design by Don Day, and sound design by Joel Mercado-See.
