THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES
A Sherlock Holmes mystery in the Watermill Theatre Gardens
a new version devised by the Company
from 21st May to 19th June
A mysterious murder, an ancient curse and a legendary detective…
Back by popular demand following last year’s sell-out summer run, join us on the wild moors of Dartmoor and prepare for cryptic chaos! Three actors play all the characters in this madcap version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most celebrated Sherlock Holmes story.
When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead with a look of horror still on his face and beside him the paw prints of a gigantic beast, Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are summoned from Baker Street to investigate the crime and discover the truth about the Hound of the Baskervilles.
All performances take place outside in The Watermill garden, and will go ahead whatever the weather. Seats in the garden are uncovered, so we recommend you bring appropriate clothing.
