The Hound of the Baskervilles

Karchmer HOUND Electronic-19

“It’s slapstick, it’s verbal wordplay, it’s fast-paced physical comedy and joking asides to the audience — and director/sound designer Stephen Russell succeeds in combining them all with spot-on sound and lighting effects to create a world, a story and a hilarious comedy.” – Kathi Driscoll, Cape Cod Times

Following the huge success of WHAT’s The 39 Steps last spring, we are pleased to bring you this “wonderfully barking spoof.”

When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on his estate, with a look of terror still etched on his face and the paw prints of a gigantic hound beside his body, the great detective Sherlock Holmes is summoned from Baker Street, with Dr. Watson in tow, to unravel the mysteries surrounding his death and investigate the ancient curse of the Hound of the Baskervilles. Packed full of verbal and visual ingenuity, this version offers abundant opportunities for silly comedy and slapstick, bringing new light to a classic tale.

With David Nelson (Noises Off, The Little Dog LaughedDanny Casolaro Died For You), Robin Russell (The 39 Steps, Six Characters in Search of an Author) and Ted Vitale (director of last year’s hit The 39 Steps)
