THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES

by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 

adapted by Steven Canny & John Nicholson 

directed by Matt Pfeiffer

SEPTEMBER 11 – 29, 2019

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most beloved Sherlock Holmes story gets a makeover in an exhilarating collision of slapstick, absurdity, and silliness. Zany and fast-paced, The Hound of the Baskervilles offers farcical surprises and brilliant theatrical invention performed by a trio of endearing clowns and klutzes. Adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson for three actors, this barkingly hilarious spoof leaves audiences dying from laughter.
