The Hound of the Baskervilles Oc­to­ber 24-Novem­ber 24

Cotswold Life - - INSIDER’S GUIDE -

This West End and record-break­ing play tells the story of when Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead with a look of ter­ror etched upon his face and the paw prints of a gi­gan­tic hound be­side his body. The great de­tec­tive Sher­lock Holmes is sum­moned from Baker Street with Dr Wat­son in tow and the two be­gin to un­ravel the mys­ter­ies sur­round­ing his death and the an­cient curse of the Hound of the Baskervilles.

Sir Arthur Co­nan Doyle’s most cel­e­brated Sher­lock Holmes story gets a glo­ri­ously funny makeover in this ‘won­der­fully bark­ing spoof’ (Daily Tele­graph) with a ta­lented cast of three ac­tors play­ing mul­ti­ple roles.

Break­ing box of­fice records be­fore tour­ing the UK, the Hound of the Baskervilles is a sub­limely funny adap­ta­tion of the clas­sic tale that will en­ter­tain and de­light au­di­ences of all ages. This story has been de­scribed by crit­ics as a story that turns a tale of ter­ror on the des­o­late moors of Vic­to­rian Eng­land into a mile-a-minute comic romp.
