The Hound Of The Baskervilles

Hounds of the BaskervillesFor the first main stage production of 2016 the Globe Theatre is presenting one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous mysteries with Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick Dr. Watson venturing on to the dark and foggy moors on the trail of a legendary murderous hound that is believed to curse the Baskerville family on their Devonshire estate.

There’s several classic film versions of the mystery out there. This, though, is a slapstick adaptation of the Doyle tale written by Steven Canny and John Nicholson. The play opens at the Globe Theatre on Wednesday Jan. 20, and will run until Feb. 7. You can find more information on the Globe Theatre website.
