BRITISH Touring Shakespeare presents an outdoor production of the timeless and spellbinding detective mystery The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle at Fyne Court in Somerset on Saturday 26th August 2023.

While accompanying Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson on their quest to solve a mystery, audiences will be drawn into the tale of a supernatural hound haunting and terrifying the inhabitants of Dartmoor, writes Mary Stoppard.

With riveting live music performed by composer Alistair Smith, an accomplished and colourful cast will also convey audiences to the murky backstreets of 19th Century London.

David Hobbs MBE, fellow screen writer, award-winning historian and author, states: "The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of the greatest detective novels ever written, and we are delighted to bring it to the stage. My son Andrew and I have worked hard to create an adaptation that stays true to the spirit of the original, while also offering a fresh and exciting take on the story. We can't wait to share it with the audience at Fyne Court."

Andrew Hobbs, Artistic Director of British Touring Shakespeare, reveals: "We are thrilled to bring this classic tale to life on stage. The Hound of the Baskervilles is a timeless story that has captured the imaginations of generations, and we are excited to return …. with a new interpretation that will thrill and entertain audiences."

The Hound of the Baskervilles will be performed at Fyne Court in Somerset on Saturday 26th August.
