'Farcical' Hound of the Baskervilles heading to Coventry's Belgrade Theatre after becoming a West End hit

A FARCICAL adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles which was a big hit in the West End is coming to the Belgrade Theatre’s main stage from February 8 to 12.

The classic Sherlock Holmes story is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most celebrated adventure and is being brought to Coventry by Original Theatre Company and Octagon Theatre Bolton.

The play was adapted for the stage by Steven Canny and John Nicholson for Peepolykus and is directed on tour by Tim Jackson.

The show combines an exhilarating collision of farce, theatrical invention and wonderful comic performances to offer a brand-new twist on the greatest detective story of all time.

Holmes and Watson are tasked with unravelling the mystery surrounding the untimely death of Sir Charles Baskerville while rumours circulated about a giant hound loose on the moors.

They must act fast to save the Baskerville family’s last remaining heir.

The show stars Jack Ferretti as Sherlock Holmes, Serena Manteghi as Sir Henry and Niall Ransome as Dr Watson.

Lotte Wakeham previously said: “I’ve been blown away by the wonderful response to this production of The Hound of the Baskervilles – it’s been a real joy to have audiences back in the theatre, laughing uproariously every night.”
