The Hound of the Baskervilles

A Play by Steven Canny and John Nicholson

If you enjoyed our production of The 39 Steps a couple of seasons ago, you’ll love this adaption of Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary classic. It’s been a huge hit both in the UK and abroad. The authors have taken the basic elements of the original story and turned them into a hilarious spoof for the stage. When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead surrounded by the paw prints of a gigantic hound, the famous Sherlock Holmes, and his colleague Dr Watson are summoned to investigate. They hear terrifying tales of a monstrous beast haunting the neighbourhood, rumours of a family curse, and reports of a deranged killer on the loose. Scary stuff, all presented in an extremely amusing and suspenseful manner. And what makes it even more fun? It’s done with just three actors playing all the roles!

Unfailingly hilarious.
