The Hound of the Baskervilles
by Sir Arthur Conan Boyle
Adapted by Martin Parsons
“Mr Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound!”
The legend of the Hound Of The Baskervilles has haunted the Baskerville family for generations – none more so than Sir Charles Baskerville, who died in mysterious circumstances worthy of the legend. This leads Doctor Mortimer to consult Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, in the hope of preventing the heir to the Baskerville estate, Sir Henry, from suffering the same fate. But the supernatural seems a very long way from 221B Baker Street…
However, once Holmes and Watson journey to isolated Baskerville Hall, the line between reality and the legend of the hound becomes blurred. Death, doom and myth surround them – what is the secret of the butler in the night, whose is the mysterious lantern that shines in the darkness, and what is it that stalks Dartmoor with murderous intent?
Will Holmes’ powers of deduction be able to solve the case of The Hound Of The Baskervilles – or will he become the latest victim of this hellish apparition?
Celebrating the 120th anniversary of the publication of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic detective novel, The Hound Of The Baskervilles is the most famous of Sherlock Holmes’ adventures. Presented by Crime And Comedy Theatre Company in a brand new adaptation, this tale of murder, mystery and horror is surely the greatest detective story ever told!
The Hound Of The Baskervilles will be touring the UK from
Thursday 6th October until Saturday 19th November 2022
