Dust off your detective cap

Benedict Cumberbach might not be there, but a local iteration of the legendary London sleuth Sherlock Holmes will face Glensheen Mansion in “The Hounds of Baskerville.” Glensheen takes the lead role as a house plagued by a diabolical hound of supernatural origins. Holmes and his companion, Dr. Watson, are on the case. The mystery is being directed by Rob Larson and features local college students filling in the actual acting roles. The event is part of Living Literature, part of the University of Minnesota Duluth’s School of Fine Arts, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in April. The evening includes the performance, drinks and hors d’oeuvres, a post-viewing presentation on the Sherlock Holmes genre and an abbreviated flashlight tour of the Congdon mansion. The performance runs April 3-5 with shows starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $35 and are available at glensheen.org.
