The Baskerville demon of legend, a creature from nightmare, with blazing eyes and dripping jaws. Gentlemen, there is such a reign of terror in the district that no one will cross the moor at night.

Sir Charles Baskerville is dead. A look of horror on his face and, near to his body, the foot prints of a gigantic hound. Has the curse of the Baskervilles struck again?

At once, Sherlock Holmes and trusty Watson are on the trail, hotfooting it to Devonshire in a race to save the next heir to Baskerville Hall.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s gripping classic, The Hound of The Baskervilles, is brought ingeniously to the stage, with just 5 actors bringing 42 vivid characters to life.

 Join our intrepid investigators on the misty, mysterious moor for a tale that explodes into life with comic genius, wit and intrigue.
