Described as a masterpiece of mystery and suspense, The Hound of the Baskervilles is the most celebrated Sherlock Holmes story of all.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s tale of the Baker Street detective and his trusty sidekick Watson has been hilariously adapted for the stage.
The adaption was done by Steven Canny & John Nicholson. It will run for three weeks and certainly promises to be a production not to be missed.
This howlingly funny spoof will be directed by Marieke Audsley. She specialises in both classic and modern drama and has already made a huge impact following her work last time at East Riding Theatre.
Marieke was the creative mind behind last year’s sell-out success Beryl which subsequently went on to a sell-out London transfer at the Arcola Theatre in Hackney.
Marieke says she had a wonderful time directing Beryl adding it is a treat to be back at East Riding Theatre.
The Hound of the Baskervilles Will See Marieke Audsley Return To ERT
Commenting on the news of the production and returning to East Riding Theatre she said;
“I had such a wonderful time directing Beryl in Beverley last year. It is a treat to be back at ERT.”
“Canny and Nicholson’s adaptation of Conan Doyle’s classic tale is fantastically entertaining. It will most certainly be a real pleasure to direct and share with audiences.”
The cast of three actors will play 14 different characters in this hilarious spoof of beastly proportions.
Tickets for the show are now on sale and can be ordered online. While you can also buy them by calling into the Theatre. They range in price from £12 up to £17.50 per person.
Performances will take from 23 April at 2.30PM and also at 7.30 PM and run until 16 May.
