Hound of the Baskervilles


  • The Barn Theatre Cirencester (map)

“The most popular of the Sherlock Holmes stories becomes pure comic bliss” The Stage

When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on his estate, with a look of terror still etched on his face, and the paw prints of a gigantic hound beside his body, the great detective Sherlock Holmes is summoned from Baker Street, with Dr Watson in tow, to unravel the mysteries surrounding his death, and investigate the ancient curse of the Hound of the Baskervilles.

Written by John Nicholson and Steven Canny for the hit comedy team Peepolykus, this version premiered at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, Leeds, UK in 2007, where it broke box-office records, before touring the UK and transferring to the West End.

On the 31st of October there will be a tweed-evening, with Sherlock themed cocktails, an opportunity to meet the cast, and a prize for the best tweed!

“A mad hilarity that will make you feel quite sane” Sunday Times

“This side-splitting parody of the Sherlock Holmes story turns a tale of terror on the desolate moors of Victorian England into a mile-a-minute comic romp. The audience is kept in constant hysterics as the show’s three actors pile up one pun after another, and outrageous sight gags fly by at a rapid rate”.
