CASTING ANNOUNCEMENT FOR MERCURY THEATRE’S BASKERVILLE!

This event has expired!

5 August 2021 to 22 August 2021 Book tickets

40 characters. 5 actors. 1 madcap adventure for the world’s most famous detective!

Mercury Theatre, led by Executive Director, Steve Mannix and Executive Producer, Tracey Childs, have announced the full cast of Ken Ludwig’s BASKERVILLE! as part of the company’s opening season in its newly refurbished venue. Following two years of closure, the company are aiming to reimagine and improve accessibility throughout the theatre. The production opens on 5 August, with previews from 30 July, and runs until 22 August.

Creative Director of Mercury Theatre Ryan McBryde directs Richard Ede (Sherlock Holmes), Marc Pickering (Stapleton and others), Eric Stroud (Doctor Watson), Eva-Jane Willis (Miss Stapleton and others), Phil Yarrow (Sir Henry and others).

“This is a thrilling new look at Sherlock Holmes. On the murky moors of Devonshire, heirs to the Baskerville name are being killed, one by one. Some say it’s a family curse. Some say it’s a murderous hellhound. Some say it’s a load of old nonsense. A case like this can be solved by only one man…or…actually...two – so don your deerstalkers because Holmes and Watson are on the case!”

Tickets available on the Mercury Theatre website.
