Opening night for “Baskerville,” a Sherlock Holmes Mystery

Published 10:00 am Monday, November 8, 2021

Thursday, November 11, is opening night for Tryon Little Theater’s production of “Baskerville” – a Ken Ludwig comedy which transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic tale into a murderously funny adventure. Ludwig has been called America’s preeminent comic playwright and has won numerous awards for his plays and musicals.

 

Set in London and the vast moors of Devonshire, the “Baskerville” cast consists of only five people – and three of those actors play over forty different characters. With silly accents, disguises and some ingenious improvisation, the pace is fast and furious at times as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson attempt to find a killer who is dispatching the male heirs of the Baskerville line.

 

Directed by Nancy Winker, the play runs over two weekends: November 11-14 and November 18-21, with evening performances starting at 7:30 PM, and Sunday matinees at 3:00 PM. Tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for students under 18. There is limited capacity seating, and masks are required to attend the performance. Visit www.tltinfo.org, or call 828-859-2466 for tickets and more information.
