Sherlock Holmes

On the lonely wasteland of the desolate Devon moors, something evil is afoot. When death stalks the Baskerville family, legend and superstition collide with the most heinous of crimes. On the moor nobody is safe, not even the bravest of men. Join Chapterhouse to meet the world’s most famous of detectives, Sherlock Holmes himself, as he is called upon to solve the greatest mystery of all time…that of the Hound of the Baskervilles. Bring a picnic and your best detective skills for an unforgettable evening of mystery, suspense and theatre under the stars.

This is the second time that Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles is touring with Chapterhouse. The company’s first production of this show in 2013 was such a big success that it began somewhat of a tradition in Sherlock Holmes adaptations. Since then they have also toured brand new productions of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (2014) and The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes (2015). Now, Chapterhouse are giving audiences a second chance to see this stunning adaptation of Doyle’s most haunting mystery.

Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles is a wonderfully dramatic chase across the dark and dangerous landscape of Dartmoor. With a new spin on the classic Holmesian story of intrigue, murder and revenge, I hope our adaptation of the Hound of the Baskervilles will thrill new audiences and fans alike. A mysterious creature haunts the moors, but what’s more dangerous – man or beast?” – Laura Turner, Writer. 

“I’m a big fan of the Sherlock Holmes stories, and am thrilled to be staging probably the most well-known of all Conan Doyle’s collection. I want to bring back the excitement and thrill of the mystery, with an air of classic Sherlock.” – Bryony Tebbutt, Director.
