THE WASHINGTON-BASED Picnic Theatre Company presented three sold-out, fun-filled performances of Sherlock Holmes and Hound of The Baskervilles at Dumbarton House in Washington, D.C., Nov. 15, Nov. 21 and Nov. 22. The play by Tim Kelly was based on the famous story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and was directed by Karim Chrobog.

IN THE STORY, the famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his partner Dr. Watson have been summoned to Baskerville Hall on a desolate Scottish moor. An old colleague Dr. Mortimer hopes to enlist the pair to determine if the recent death of Sir Charles Baskerville is the result of an alleged curse that has loomed over the Baskerville family since 1742. The Picnic Theatre’s rendition of the resulting investigation by Holmes is filled with intrigue and delightful humor.
