The Chase Is On: Playmakers' Galloping After the Hound of the Baskervilles
"Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery" is a rollicking, raucous piece of theater that stays specific and detailed and fairly true to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original classic, "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (written in 1902, but set in 1889). It's by award winning playwright, Ken Ludwig, who puts his own twist on this classic story.
This bright, shiny, whodunit entertainment should fill the community's preference for comedy when it runs Oct 25, 27, 29, November 1,3,5,8,9, 2019 at The Playmakers' Theatre, 121 W. 3rd St, Grove, Ok.
Evening performances begin at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m. The doors open thirty minutes prior to these curtain times.

In this mystery by Doyle, the roles of Sherlock and Watson are reversed with Watson becoming the main character and Sherlock his companion. The Playmakers help the fun along by casting women in the title roles. Ova Jean Siemens takes on the role of Watson, accompanied by Pam Leptich as Sherlock. Don Simpson directs.
Sherlock's use of logic, deduction, and science may be only loosely observed in this comic mystery as some forty other characters are all played by only three actors: Joan Engel, David Simpson, & Brian Turner. Obviously, it's a farce, moved along by under-dressing and Velcro and a backstage crew of masterful quick-change artists, who will, no doubt, need a primary spot in the bows at the end of a performance.
Holmes begins the search for clues with Watson. "They meet with dozens of folk in locations such as crowded railway stations, foggy London streets, forbidding English moors and one gloomy mansion. There are clues galore, plenty of dead ends and a sizable puzzle to solve to ferret out the truth. But know it is all in good fun - no scare-fest at all...All that is needed by the audiences is a desire to be humored with a willingness to let go of inhibitions to laugh, chuckle or merely chortle or snicker. (David Siegel, D.C. Metro)
The Playmakers have experience with this type of comedy through previous productions: "The Complet Wks of Wm Shkspr" (1997); "Greater Tuna" (1999); "The Complete History of America" (1999); "Farndale Avenue Housing Estates Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery" (2004); "Farndale... Christmas Carol" (2006); Neo-Futurists--"
