Laughter, intrigue and suspense are evoked in equal measure by this fast-paced dramatisation of the classic Sherlock Holmes mystery. Originally scripted for open-air performance in the promenade style, the action kicks off with an amusing, rustic, Victorian melodrama; but thereafter it is the brooding presence of Dartmoor which lies at its dark centre. Over the purple heather, the granite tors and the sucking bog of Grimpen Mire, comes a parade of colourful characters to confuse and disturb the courageous soul of Doctor Watson, sent by Holmes to scout for some solid facts behind the highly mysterious death of Sir Charles Baskerville. Fresh-faced from Canada, the new baronet, Sir Henry Baskerville, - You can cut the Sir ! - is having none of the old world superstition surrounding the ancient curse on his family; yet it slowly becomes apparent, even to his no-nonsense mind, that a very real threat is lurking on Baskerville Moor. And, what is more, it leaves footprints... Playwright Simon Corble gives Conan Doyle's original tale some highly inventive twists in order to create an engaging drama that has delighted audiences and received glowing reviews wherever it has been staged since 1995. In print for the first time, the action leaps off the page at even the most casual reader and, if you think you know exactly how it is going to end...the female of the species has a surprise in store. Hell hath no fury, Watson. Quite, Holmes.
