"a zany, farcical and fast paced production - bursting with gags and laughter" - NETheatre

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most celebrated Sherlock Holmes case gets a gloriously funny makeover in this hilarious take on the legendary gothic mystery!

With his faithful sidekick Dr Watson in tow, the great detective finds himself up against an ancient family curse as a spectral hound seemingly runs amok on Dartmoor.

If you enjoyed our production of “The 39 Steps” a few years ago, you’ll love the quickfire gags, red herrings, disguises and twists in this fun-packed satirical romp! 

This stage version of The Hound of the Baskervilles, adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson, was first performed by Peepolykus at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, Leeds, in 2007.

This amateur production of The Hound of the Baskervilles is performed by special arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
