The Hound of the Baskervilles

Adapted by Douglas Maxwell
Directed by Jake Smith

'A hound it was, an enormous coal-black hound, but not such a hound as mortal eyes have ever seen…'

Charles Baskerville is dead, and a terrifying beast is rumoured to stalk the moors around the remote Baskerville mansion.

When Sherlock Holmes sends Doctor Watson to investigate, Watson finds himself surrounded by dense fog and a community steeped in folklore, legend and rumour, where the line between reality and myth is no longer clear. How can a rational man trust his own eyes when confronted with the impossible?

Following the sell-out success of H.G. Wells’ The War Of The Worlds, Northern Stage presents Sherlock Holmes’ most infamous case, adapted from Arthur Conan Doyle’s gothic classic.
