Casting: The Hound of the Baskervilles

29 Apr 24

A demonic hound appears to be terrorising the heirs of the Baskerville family, whose home borders the wastes of Dartmoor. Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are implored by a friend of Sir Henry Baskerville to investigate the curse. A comedic take on the story sees an energetic cast of three bring Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous story to life in an interpretation that will amuse and terrorise its audience in equal measure.

I'm very excited to announce my cast for The Hound of the Baskervilles. Thank you very much to all those who tackled a Shakespeare monologue and extravagant business for the first audition, then threw themselves wholeheartedly into a number of ridiculous scenes from the play for the callbacks. I could have cast it several times over from the array of talent on display. We are very much looking forward to tackling this brilliant and deeply unserious version of the story and bringing it to summer audiences. One for Sherlock fans, lovers of physical comedy, spookiness and silliness, this is genuinely a show for all ages.
