The Hound of the Baskervilles (Preview)

The Hound of the Baskervilles

adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson
from the novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle


Packed full of verbal and visual ingenuity and abundant comedy, this sublimely funny reimagining of the most celebrated Sherlock Holmes mystery is a hyper-theatrical tour de force. When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on the moors with a look of terror still etched on his face, the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes is summoned from Baker Street to unravel the mysteries surrounding his death and investigate an ancient curse. A hit in London’s West End called “gut-bustingly funny” by The Times, this clever new adaptation brings the silly-yet-dignified tone of British sketch comedy to a classic Holmesian whodunnit. For all ages.

Directed by Mark Shanahan (Peter and the Starcatcher, Around the World in 80 Days)
