Cardinal Stage Company’s ‘Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery’ Begins September 23

A monster in the shape of a black hound has haunted the wealthy Baskerville line for generations. Suspicions arise once again, as a peculiar man named Mortimer informs detectives Sherlock Holmes and Watson of the recent death of Sir Charles Baskerville — and recounts the myth of the illuminating hound.

The new heir to the Baskerville fortune has already moved into the estate and is seeing mysterious signs, such as missing his shoe. Too busy to take the case, Holmes sends his partner, Watson, to investigate.


Who benefits from the death of Sir Charles Baskerville? Who are the strange characters who wander the grounds? There are the Berrymores, who help with household chores, but their motivation doesn’t make sense. Perhaps it’s the lonely shadow of a man who has been watching over the moors. There is also Mr. Stapleton, who warns of impending danger, or Laura Lyons, who met with Sir Charles on the night of his death. But what does that have to do with a ghostly black hound, whose howls have been heard during the late hours of the night?

Join Sherlock Holmes and Watson on their adventure to Devonshire as they try to uncover the mystery of the Baskervilles’ inexplicable deaths. Keep up with the greatest detectives ever as they uncover clue after clue — to an unexpected conclusion.

Ken Ludwig puts a wickedly fun spin on Arthur Conan Doyle’s most popular Sherlock Holmes mystery. Not only is this hilarious yet chilling play filled with excitement at every turn, but it also features five versatile actors playing dozens of roles in the madcap style of The 39 Steps. So don your deerstalker cap and join Cardinal Stage Company at the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center — from September 23rd to October 9th — for Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery!
