The Winnipesaukee Playhouse Professional Company Presents
The Hound of the Baskervilles
Adapted by Clive Francis
From the story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson take on their most famous case
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 Sir Charles apparently meets a similar fate, dying of fright on the grounds of Baskerville Hall. Can Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson solve the mystery of the Hound of the Baskervilles before Sir Charles' 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.
