The Hound of the Baskervilles
adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson
from the novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
"HYSTERICAL, MY DEAR WATSON!" - The Telegraph
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.
