The Hound of the Baskervilles

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, this sublimely funny reimagining of the celebrated Sherlock Holmes mystery is a hyper-theatrical tour de force. When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on the moors, the legendary detective is summoned from Baker Street to unravel the mysteries surrounding his death. This clever new adaptation brings the silly-yet-dignified tone of British sketch comedy to a classic Holmesian whodunnit. Directed by Mark Shanahan (Peter and the Starcatcher). For all ages. 

“A happy spoof with a winning, welcome playfulness.- The New York Times
