The Lyceum Theatre presents the Arrow Rock premier of ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’
ARROW ROCK — The Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatre presents a Sherlock Holmes mystery, “The Hound of the Baskervilles,” Aug. 5-13.
London. Autumn. 1890. The famous consulting detective Sherlock Holmes and his friend and colleague Dr. John Watson are called in to investigate a most intriguing mystery: What could have frightened Sir Chares Baskerville to death? Is there an ancient curse on the Baskerville family? Is Sir Henry Baskerville, Sir Charles’ young heir, being stalked by a supernatural hound from Hell? In this new adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s greatest adventure, Holmes and Watson pursue the answers to these questions from their rooms in Baker Street, through the teeming streets of London and on to the windswept moors of Devonshire. With a dash of humor, this thrilling feast culminates on the fog-bound reaches of Dartmoor, where finally the secret of “The Hound of the Baskervilles” is revealed. The play is written by R. Hamilton Wright and David Pichette.
