Theatre on the lawn - Hound of the Baskervilles

Illyria present 'The Hound of the Baskervilles' by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Enjoy this classic play in the perfect location deep on Dartmoor....

  • Booking essential

An evening of mystery, intrigue and things that go woof in the night.

​Who killed Sir Charles Baskerville? Can anyone prevent the same fate befalling the young Sir Henry Baskerville? Is a monstrous hound really roaming Dartmoor? Why is someone systematically stealing Sir Henry’s shoes? And how does a ghostly hound manage to leave vast paw-prints and other unwelcome evidence of its existence?

The original and greatest literary detective of them all, Sherlock Holmes, and his assistant Doctor Watson, tackle the most baffling case of their careers in this faithful, cheeky but chilling adaptation.
