A bloodcurdling hound is heard across a cold, moonlit moor; the spectral hound has claimed another victim.
Sir Hugo Baskerville was the picture of aristocratic excess, drunkenness and debauchery until he was struck down by a demonic hound sent to punish his wickedness - or so the legend tells. Two hundred years later his descendant apparently meets a similar fate, dying of fright in the grounds of Baskerville Hall. Can Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson solve the mystery of the Hound of the Baskervilles before the newest heir comes to an equally gruesome end?
THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES is one of the greatest stories of the twentieth century and its macabre appeal has made it the most popular of the Sherlock Holmes adventures.
Oldham Coliseum and Imitating the Dog work in collaboration to create a haunting tapestry of digital images, stark lighting and enveloping sound. The production reflects the terrors and loneliness of Dartmoor, induces the claustrophobic tension of the gothic hall and brings to life the ghostly retributive hellhound of the family curse.
Whilst refurbishing their own iconic venue the Oldham Coliseum make a special visit to the LBT to premiere this new production.
