Wellington Repertory is proud to present this new adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles (written by Jon Jury) – as swift and clever as the famous detective himself.
A singular crime demands a singular detective, and the web of mystery surrounding Baskerville Hall is so strange that only the great Sherlock Holmes can take on the case.
A local legend of a phantom hound is easily dismissed over a cup of tea, but when Lord Baskerville is found dead beside the footprints of just such a creature and his heir receives an ominous warning, Holmes and his loyal friend Watson must discover the truth about the danger lurking on the desolate moor. When the game’s afoot and the fog rolls in, will the unflappable master of logic meet his match in the jaws of the supernatural? Only Holmes can stop the beast. While mysterious lights signal Baskerville Hall, and the hound terrifies the countryside, the sleuthing begins and suspicion falls on sinister servants, butterfly collectors, ladies in distress, and escaped convicts.
