The Hound of the Baskervilles

The Hound of the Baskervilles

A fast-paced, far-fetched spoof of this beloved Holmesian classic performed in the very place where it was written; Conan Doyle’s family home, Undershaw. This his most famous novel is given a fondly farcical overhaul in this caper through London, the moors, and back to Baker Street.

After the death of Sir Charles Baskerville, Sherlock Holmes dispatches Dr Watson to Baskerville Hall in order to protect the new squire, Sir Henry Baskerville.

Navigating through a world of danger and intrigue, Watson endures some hair-raising encounters in order to look after his charge, but with a lethal hound on the loose and suspicious characters at every turn, will Sir Henry even make it to the end of the play? And more importantly, will Watson, ever have time to eat dinner?

Three actors play all the parts in this clever comedy that serves up the original plot of the famous story as you are unlikely to have seen it before..!

17 characters, 3 actors, 1 heck of a laugh!
