The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, adapted by Oliver Gray.

Who killed Sir Charles Baskerville? And how does a ghostly hound manage to leave vast paw-prints and other unwelcome evidence of its existence?

The original and greatest literary detective of them all, Sherlock Holmes, and his assistant Doctor Watson, tackle the most baffling case of their careers in this cheeky but chilling adaptation. From the eerie moonlit landscapes of Dartmoor to cryptic clues, this gripping adaptation promises an irresistible blend of tension and wit.

Performed in the great outdoors by Illyria, prepare for an unforgettable evening of mystery, intrigue and things that go ‘grrrr’ in the night!

Illyria’s mission is simple: to create outstandingly enjoyable theatre and make it available for everyone. Illyria have been pursuing this mission for over thirty years, performed for more than a million people, and intend to entertain families across the country for many more seasons to come.

Illyria supports Equity’s ‘Professionally Made, Professionally Paid’ campaign for fair pay and working conditions.
