Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic mystery, The Hound of the Baskervilles, is bought to life in Northern Rep’s hilarious new production, which launches their intimate Manchester city centre performance space, The Reading Room.
This inventive comedy mystery features two fearless actors playing every role in two hours of fast-paced farcical fun to audiences of just 30.
Preview nights run from Saturday – June 17 – with the main show then running from June 28 to September 16.
The Hound of the Baskervilles has been adapted and directed by Thomas Moore, and is performed in pairs by four cast members – Thea Beyleveld, Christopher Brown, Angela Hazeldine and Michael Justice – who rotate performances.
Thomas Moore, Artistic Director of Northern Rep, said: “I’m thrilled to be bringing one of Sherlock Holmes’ and Dr Watson’s most famous adventures to Manchester in its own purpose-built theatre, The Reading Room.
“We’ve been working hard over the past few months converting a secret corner of The Great Northern Warehouse into an intimate 30-seat theatre that will host The Hound of the Baskervilles.
“Expect riotous performances from Mr Holmes and Dr Watson as Mrs Hudson takes care of all of your refreshment needs from your seat!”
