Audition information


The Hound of the Baskervilles
by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson


November 3rd – November 5th 2022 at Victoria Hall Theatre

'Rib-bustingly hilarious.' The Times 

Mr Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound… 

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most celebrated adventure gets a brilliantly farcical overhaul in this fast-paced theatrical adaptation. 


World-renowned detective Sherlock Holmes and his colleague Dr Watson are asked to unravel the mystery surrounding the untimely death of Sir Charles Baskerville. With rumours of a cursed giant hound loose on the moors, they must act fast in order to save the Baskerville family’s last remaining heir. 

A hit in the West End, this ingenious adaptation offers ample opportunity for exhilarating farce, theatrical invention, and physical comedy to create a brand-new twist on the greatest detective story of all time. 

A whodunnit for all ages. 

This production requires a busy cast of three playful performers (male or female) with further opportunities for a couple of acting ASMs!
