A hound it was, an enormous coal-black hound, but not such a hound as mortal eyes have ever seen…


Charles Baskerville is dead, and a terrifying beast is rumoured to stalk the moors around the remote Baskerville mansion.


When Sherlock Holmes sends Doctor Watson to investigate, Watson finds himself surrounded by dense fog and a community steeped in folklore, legend and rumour. At Baskerville Hall, the line between reality and myth is no longer clear.


Following the sell-out success of H.G. Wells’ The War Of The Worlds, Northern Stage presents Sherlock Holmes’ most infamous case, adapted from Arthur Conan Doyle’s gothic classic.
