Synopsis: The Hound of The Baskervilles is one of literature’s most terrifying stories. And, as it happens, the title alone is enough to shift a theatre’s worth of tickets. Come and witness the Penrith Players take this classic tale, slash the casting down to three versatile, multitasking actors (helps with the profit margins), remove almost all of the set (again, profit), and bring this haunting tale to life before your very eyes.
This version of Conan Doyle’s Hound adds a splash of comedy, a twist of slapstick, and an awful lot of costume changes, bringing a new energy to Sherlock Holmes.
The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson
