SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES by Chapterhouse Theatre Company Britain
Performed in English with Chinese subtitle
On the lonely wasteland of the desolate Devon moors, something evil is afoot. When death stalks the Baskerville family, legend and superstition collide with the most heinous of crimes. On the moor nobody is safe, not even the bravest of men.
Join Chapterhouse to meet the world's most famous of detective, Sherlock Holmes himself, as he is called upon to solve the greatest mystery of all time...that of the Hound of the Baskervilles. Bring a picnic and your best detective skills for an unforgettable evening of mystery, suspense and theatre under the stars.
"Interlaced with the superstitious tale of the curse of 'the hound' who's howls echoed around the gardens, the story unfolds with all the intrigue, drama and tension that always comes with the 'whodunnit' format of Sherlock's tales. A thoroughly enjoyable evening, with clever casting and a great adaptation by Laura Turner." NANTWICH NEWS
"Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's tale of the dreaded curse of the Baskervilles received a fresh twist in the ChapterHouse Theatre Company production. The hound's bright red eyes, snarling teeth and the howls across the park proved the spectacle of the evening." THE NOTTINGHAM POST
" …a production that rattled along with snappy dialogue and helter-skelter plot for a sell-out crowd." VISIT LIVERPOOL
"What Chapterhouse does is theatre at the coalface, carried by the power of acting, cheeky engagement with the audience and a refreshing absence of anything technical. ... and they do it with distinction. It all adds up to a thoroughly good evening's entertainment." THE STAGE
About Chapterhouse Theatre Company
In the Winter of 1999 Chapterhouse Theatre Company took its first steps towards becoming one of a number of touring theatre companies specialising in performing under the stars and at some of the most beautiful gardens the UK had to offer. The very first performance was at Herstmonceux Castle where the company performed Romeo and Juliet by the moat of the beautiful Tudor building. It was the start of an incredible 17 years which has seen the company go from strength to strength changing and adapting to new audiences and challenges every year but holding the same principals of producing warm, traditional and hopefully magical theatre in magical surroundings.
