The set design from Kent Streed and Anita Montgomery is black box minimalist, allowing lighting and sound to play a more active role. This works wonderfully within this performance as the silhouettes, fog and even gun fire (blanks) add to the intrigue.
The play unfolds as Holmes and Watson are asked to probe into the death of Sir Charles Baskerville who has seemingly been frightened to death. Dr. John Mortimer (Michael Ring) seeks answers from Holmes regarding his friend’s death while he worries for the safety of Sir Charles’ American heir, Sir Henry.
