Theatre - Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Lymington Players web
Lymington Community Centre
November 2016
Holmes’s most spine chilling mystery has been dramatized with suspense, humour and terror. Sir Henry is heir to the vast Baskerville fortune, a legacy that comes with a curse, death at the fangs of a horror that prowls the moor. Only Holmes can stop the beast. While mysterious lights signal Baskerville Hall and the hound terrifies the countryside, the sleuthing begins and suspicion falls on sinister servants, butterfly collectors, ladies in distress and escaped convicts. Who wrote the letter that summoned the hound? Is Sir Henry’s romance with the lovely Kitty doomed? Is the supernatural at work?
