“A Wonderfully Barking Spoof”
“Packed with physical inventiveness, this Hound adapted by Stephen Canny and the company, takes eccentric multiple-characterisation and ridiculous wackiness to extremes.”
Mayhem on the Moor!
Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead, having apparently tip-toed to his final resting place, but with terror on his face and the paw prints of a gigantic hound found beside his body. Sir Henry, a Canadian, arrives to take his rightful place at Baskerville Hall amidst tales of the terrifying Hound still on the loose. It’s up to Sherlock Holmes and Watson to keep Sir Henry alive long enough to track down the evil mastermind! This 3-man version of the classic mystery is a rollicking spoof that is pure comedy. Three actors play 17 parts in this madcap adventure. Surely Sir Arthur wouldn’t object…
