The Hound of the Baskervilles

Can you get any more value for a tenner here in the wonderland they call London? Lisa arrived this morning in London as one of her many stops on her round the world ticket
We decided that a visit to London's West End would be a great little excursion after her mammoth 4 hour nanna nap to recover from her non sleep flight from the US.
A good old trusting favourite, came up trumps offering a nights worth of entertainment for a tenner (£10). What a show, what acting, what a comedy. These 3 guys were fantastic in the delivery of this Sherlock Holmes classic. If you are in London, then try to get along to see this night of sheer entertainment.

An ancient family curse, a desolate moor, a spectral hound and a deranged killer on the loose. The Hound of the Baskervilles is the most celebrated Sherlock Holmes story of all, a masterpiece of mystery and suspense.

And it's scary... Really, really scary. Tremble at the hellish howl of the Hell Hound, wonder at the twisty-turny plot and be amazed by Holmes' finest powers of deduction in this reinvigorating, terrifying and foggy new adaptation.

Over the past ten years, the award-winning company Peepolykus has received accolades from all over the world for its hilarious collision of verbal surprise and visual ingenuity. The actors take to the moors for this fast paced and thrilling production, in the hope that they will make it out of Grimpen Mire alive.

Cast includes: Javier Marzan, John Nicholson and Jason Thorpe.

  • Written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
  • Directed by Orla O'Loughlin
