Mystery

70 - 90 minutes
3 W, 8 M,  (9-11 actors possible: 2-5 W, 6-8 M)
Set: Three playing areas, which minimally suggest various locations.

A singular crime demands a singular detective, and the web of mystery surrounding Baskerville Hall is so strange that only the great Sherlock Holmes can take on the case. A local legend of a phantom hound is easily dismissed over a cup of tea, but when Lord Baskerville is found dead beside the footprints of just such a creature and his heir receives an ominous warning, Holmes and his loyal friend Watson must discover the truth about the danger lurking on the desolate moor. When the game's afoot and the fog rolls in, will the unflappable master of logic meet his match in the jaws of the supernatural? Jon Jory's adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles is as swift and clever as the famous detective himself.
