Hound of the Baskervilles
21 Mar, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00pm on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, repeating until 5 Apr, 2014
Sir Charles Barkerville is not feeling well. In fact, he’s dead. Terrified to death by a gigantic hound! The great detective, Sherlock Holmes is summoned from Baker Street, with the trusty Dr Watson in tow, to unravel the mysteries surrounding this strange death on the Dartmoor moors, and to investigate the ancient curse of the Hound before it takes another victim… the newly arrived Sir Henry Baskerville!
Also, there’s an escaped convict on the loose, some performing puppets, a mad butterfly collector, a very odd butler, even odder yokels, a suspicious hermit and a beautiful young woman in distress!
This classic story gets a gloriously funny and rather silly makeover in this barking mad spoof. Three actors, fifteen characters, fast-paced changes, absolute lunacy! Packed full of verbal humour and visual buffoonery, it is a show certain to raise more than a few smiles!
Written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Adapted to the stage by Steven Canny and John Nicholson
