The Hound of the Baskervilles
Adapted for the stage by Steven Canny and John Nicholson for Peepolykus. Directed by Lotte Wakeham Produced by The Original Theatre Company & Octagon Theatre Bolton.
Mr. Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound…
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most celebrated adventure gets a brilliantly farcical overhaul in Lotte Wakeham’s acclaimed production. 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 loose on the moors, they must act fast in order to save the Baskerville family’s last remaining heir.
A hit in the West End, this ingenious adaptation combines an exhilarating collision of farce, theatrical invention and wonderfully comic performances to offer a brand-new twist on the greatest detective story of all time. A whodunnit for all ages. From the award-winning Original Theatre Company who brought you Alan Bennett’s The Habit of Art, the smash-hit comedy Invincible and the acclaimed Birdsong.
Director Lotte Wakeham is Artistic Director of the Octagon Theatre Bolton and has directed sell-out productions in London, New York, and throughout the UK. “Wonderfully barking spoof” The Telegraph “Rib-bustingly hilarious.” The Times “Unfailingly hilarious. A masterpiece.” The Guardian
