Baskerville Sold Out-14.png



Get your deerstalker cap on — the play’s afoot! From multi-award-winning playwright Ken Ludwig comes a fast-paced adventure about everyone’s favorite detective solving his most notorious case.  Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson must crack the mystery of “The Hound of the Baskervilles” before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than 40 characters. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be. 

Baskerville was a sold-out performance. We are grateful for your ongoing support and look forward to welcoming you to our upcoming productions!


Scott Rousseau's staging was nothing short of a miracle! And even with all of the intricate staging, costume changes and the myriad of props coming and going, the pace stayed brisk and the show flowed smoothly! Great cast and a prime example of very creative and effective directing! Congrats to all involved!

"If you haven’t seen Baskerville at Merely Players in Doraville GO SEE IT. If you’re a Director, go see it for the staging of it. It was brilliant I was wide eyed and mouth dropped open 99% of the time. Scott Rousseau’s direction is actually a lesson in staging. The show is beautiful. The costumes flawless. I am still not sure how many people were in the show. That’s how many times costumes and wigs got changed …I couldn’t keep up. It was like a troop of 20 but I think there was only eight people? I love the sound design it was so different than what you would expect the play to actually call for. You just have to see it. I loved it . Nancy Lowery Powell is a goddess and we are lucky to have her on any stage in Atlanta. The entire cast deserves major kudos. Merely players is really producing excellent work and if you haven’t checked them out, you should."

"Run quickly to Doraville to see this amazing show. Scott Rousseau has done it again. He has created a brilliant show with a magnificent cast. Each and every cast member brings this show to life with multi characterizations and energy that leaves you wanting more. I can’t seem to wipe the smile off my face even now. Get your tickets immediately. This show only runs two more weekends and you don’t want to miss it."

"And now for something completely different... What imagination and a clever approach... never had a chance to catch my breath... continuous activity... it was good to laugh for a few hours... hats off to Merely Players Presents."
