The Hound Of The Baskervilles
cut to the chase... in a Queen's Theatre, Hornchurch production
By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle | Adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson
About The Show
On his foggy Dartmoor estate, Sir Charles is found dead with a look of terror on his face and gigantic paw prints next to his body. Has the demon hound struck again? Can Holmes and Watson solve the mystery of the supernatural beast before another Baskerville comes to a gruesome end?
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic tale has been given a fantastic comedy make-over by John Nicholson and Steven Canny, winner of the Sony Gold Drama Award in both 2009 and 2010 for his BBC radio plays.
This new production of their hit West End comedy thriller is packed with slapstick, quickfire wit and tongue-in-cheek humour – all delivered at breakneck speed!
If you’ve ever laughed at timeless classics like The Goon Show and Monty Python or recent hits such as The League of Gentleman and The Mighty Boosh, then this show is right up your street!
