THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES adapted for stage by Steven Canny and John Nicholson for Peepolykus

One of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most celebrated Sherlock Holmes’ stories gets a gloriously funny makeover in this ‘wonderfully barking spoof ’ (Telegraph) adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson and similar to a previous Nantwich Players’ 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 Charles’ death, and investigate the ancient curse of the Hound of the Baskervilles…

Packed full of verbal and visual ingenuity, and an abundance of comedy and slapstick this play is set to be a sure fire hit.

Directed by Chris Ridge, performances will be at 7.45pm on 10th – 18th February, 2017 

An additional matinee has been added on Saturday 18th February starting at 2.30pm. 

Tickets priced at £8.00 will be on sale from Nantwich Tourist Office (01270 600727) or on-line at from Tuesday 24nd January 2017.
