After a month-long run at Stanley Theatre, Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery comes to the Main Stage at Surrey Arts Centre.
Five actors play over 40 comical characters, filling the stage with suspects, allies, and heirs in this zany whodunit based on the Arthur Conan Doyle classic. When the wealthy Henry Baskerville is threatened by the fable of a bloodthirsty hound on the moors, Holmes and Watson are on the case to sniff out the culprit. The game’s afoot in this hilarious thriller that’s anything but elementary!
Director John Murphy says, “Baskerville is definitely a comedic romp, but the play also maintains the original story’s gothic feel, so there are moments when we hope to scare the bejesus out of people.” Perfect for the spooky month of Halloween.
Baskerville runs October 12-22, Tuesday to Saturday at 8pm, Saturday and Sunday at 4pm. Tickets are $25 to $55, including all fees. Box Office: 604-501-5566 | 13750–88 Avenue. Tickets Online: tickets.surrey.ca.
