An Octagon Theatre production with Original Theatre Company
By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Adapted by Steven Canny & John Nicholson
Directed by Lotte Wakeham

A brilliantly farcical adaptation of Sherlock Holmes’ most popular case…

World-renowned detective Sherlock Holmes and his colleague Dr Watson are asked to unravel the mystery surrounding the untimely death of Sir Charles Baskerville.

With rumours of a cursed giant hound on the loose, they must act fast to save the Baskerville family’s last remaining heir.

With plenty of red herrings, disguises and twists along the way, The Hound of the Baskervilles promises to be a fast-paced and hilarious night out.

BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE: We are maintaining social distancing in the auditorium for all performances of The Hound of the Baskervilles and with our flexible ticket exchanges you won’t miss out whatever happens.
