THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES
Wed 1 February 2017
THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES adapted for stage by Steven Canny and John Nicholson for Peepolykus
One of Sir Arthur Conan Doyleâ€™s most celebrated Sherlock Holmesâ€™ stories gets a gloriously funny makeover in this â€˜wonderfully barking spoof â€™ (Telegraph) adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson and similar to a previous Nantwich Playersâ€™ favourite... The 39 Steps.
When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on his estate, with the look of terror still etched on 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, he unravels the mysteries of Sir Charlesâ€™ death, and investigate the ancient curse of the Hound of the Baskervillesâ€¦
Packed full of verbal and visual ingenuity, and an abundance of comedy and slapstick this play is set to be a sure fire hit.
