Hound of the Baskervilles flyer

Our next production:

The Hound of the Baskervilles

written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
adapted by Tim Kelly
directed by Teresa Hagger

Sunday 29th January - Saturday 4th February 2017

2.30 p.m. Sunday matinee,
7.30 p.m. Monday-Friday

 Join the legendary Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson on their strangest case. Sir Henry is the sole heir to Baskerville Hall. But with the family fortune, so local superstition says, comes a family curse: from wicked Hugo Baskerville mauled to death centuries ago; to Henry's uncle Charles, seemingly frightened to death by the same beast. Or perhaps the culprit is something less unworldly: perhaps an escaped murderer said to be hiding on the moors.

In the wilderness of Devonshire, everyone is a suspect. Who is sending light signals and who are they for? Why did Sir Charles write letters to Laura Lyons? Were the servants really devoted to Sir Charles, or is there another reason why they don't want to stay any longer? And just how jealous is Jack of his sister Kathy's blossoming romance with Sir Henry? Prepare for suspense and terror in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous murder mystery.

Tickets are now on sale, online (booking fee applies), by telephone (03000 266600) or in person at the Gala Theatre box office. Tickets can also be brought on the door at the City Theatre prior to each performance.
