Presented in collaboration with Ohio Shakespeare Festival, "Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery" will conclude Coach House's 2016-17 season.
"Baskerville" is a new tour de force by playwright Ken Ludwig ("Lend Me a Tenor," "Leading Ladies," "The Fox on the Fairway") in which five actors play more than 40 different roles in a comic sendup of the great detective's most famous case.
"Baskerville" stars Mark Stoffer as Sherlock Holmes and Scott Shriner as Doctor Watson. Tess Burglar, Geoff Knox and Joe Pine will inhabit the large roster of colorful and crucial supporting characters in the story, from Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard to a Texas heir, from a sexy nurse to a Castilian hotel desk clerk.
The show is directed by Coach House Artistic Director Nancy Cates.
"Baskerville" can be seen May 11 to June 4. Curtain times are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. Dinner or brunch is available to all theatre patrons prior to select performances, at the Akron Woman's City Club next door.
