About the show

A mysterious murder, an ancient curse and a legendary detective…


Join us on the wild moors of Dartmoor and prepare for cryptic chaos! Three actors play all the characters in this madcap version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most celebrated Sherlock Holmes story.


Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead with the paw prints of a gigantic beast beside him and a look of horror on his face. Holmes and Watson are summoned from Baker Street to investigate the crime and discover the truth about the Hound of the Baskervilles.


Join Holmes, Watson and a host of intriguing characters and watch the mystery unfold!
