Ken Ludwig’s “Baskerville”
July 30, 2021 - August 22, 2021
Baskerville: a Sherlock Holmes Mystery
A smash hit all over America – now coming to Colchester!
40 characters. Five actors.
One madcap adventure for the world’s most famous detective!
Written by comedic genius Ken Ludwig (“Lend Me a Tenor”) this is a thrilling new look at Sherlock Holmes.
On the murky moors of Devonshire, heirs to the Baskerville name are being killed, one by one.
Some say it’s a family curse.
Some say it’s a murderous hellhound.
Some say it’s a load of old nonsense.
A case like this can be solved by only one man…or…actually…two –
so don your deerstalkers because Holmes and Watson are on the case!
This fast-paced, laugh out loud comedy sees our intrepid duo try to crack their most notorious case with the help of a tangled web of clues, silly accents, disguises and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than 40 characters.
Will our heroes discover the truth in time?
Will they fall foul of the demon hellhound?
Will they get all the costume changes right?
Join us on this murderously funny adventure to find out!
From Friday the 30th July to Sunday the 22nd August
at The Mercury Theatre, Balkerne Gate, Colchester CO1 1PT
