Sir Hugo Baskerville was the picture of aristocratic excess, drunkenness and debauchery until he was struck down by a demonic hound sent to punish his wickedness – or so the legend tells. Two hundred years later his descendant Sir Charles apparently meets a similar fate, dying of fright in the grounds of Baskerville Hall. Can Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson solve the mystery of The Hound of the Baskervilles before Sir Charles’s heir comes to an equally gruesome end?
The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of the greatest stories of the 20th century and its macabre appeal has made it the most popular of the Sherlock Holmes adventures.
Oldham Coliseum and innovative visual design team imitating the dog collaborate to fuse different theatrical traditions including video and projection to create the dark and sinister world of the famous Baker Street detective.
