Quick As A Wink Theatre’s latest production sets Sherlock Holmes on the hunt for a murderer


Five actors, 40 characters

WINDSOR, N.S. —

A terrifying howl signals the start of an adventure as Quick As A Wink Theatre’s latest production, Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery, takes the stage.

The show, directed by David Myles, is a ‘murderously funny adventure’ that sees the infamous Sherlock Holmes try to uncover who — or what — is killing off the heirs to the Baskerville line.

The show stars Andy Ashdown, as the cunning Sherlock Holmes, and Lilly Ashdown as the loveable Dr. John Watson. Freiden Gilbert, Naomi Hammond and Isaac McWhinnie all play multiple characters that interact with Holmes and Watson as the mystery unfolds.

There are still three chances to catch the play, which is being held at King’s-Edgehill School’s

Fountain Performing Arts Centre in Windsor.

The shows will be on March 22 and 23 at 7 p.m. with a special matinee on March 23 at 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at QAAW.ca or by visiting The Spoke and Note in Windsor and The Box of Delights Book Shop in Wolfville.

Quick As A Wink Theatre Society is a non-profit, charitable, community theatre group entertaining West Hants, Nova Scotia and beyond.

Coming up next for Quick As A Wink Theatre is Legally Blond. That upbeat musical is planned for the end of May, beginning of June.
