The Hound of the Baskervilles

Arthur Conan Doyle (adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson)

When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on his estate beside the paw prints of a gigantic hound, the great detective Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick Dr Watson must travel to Dartmoor to unravel the mystery and to investigate the ancient curse of the Baskervilles. It should be elementary, but with seventeen characters, over thirty props, and only three actors juggling them all, we can only promise that it will be entertaining!

Packed with verbal ingenuity and slapstick comedy, this farcical retelling of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic novel The Hound of the Baskervilles is as relentless as it is hilarious. Prepare for a detective story like no other, as this ridiculous romp through the desolate moors will leave you howling with laughter.
