The Hound of the Baskervilles on Granville Island

Directed by Langley-based, multi award-winning director, Ellie King, this imaginative and hysterical spoof of the classic Sherlock Holmes story is a challenging, yet highly entertaining piece of theatre filled with lightning fast changes of character, scenery, and costume.

The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of the most famous detective stories ever told. The noble Baskerville family is threatened by a curse: “a great, black beast larger than any hound that ever mortal eye has rested upon” terrorizes and kills any family member who comes to live at the Baskerville estate. Into this atmosphere of lonely moors, ancient secrets, deadly threats, and ghostly apparitions comes the supremely rational Sherlock Holmes – a man described by his friend Watson as “the most perfect reasoning and observing machine the world has ever seen.” Piece by piece, Holmes and Watson solve the mystery and find the culprit.

I attended the premiere in Surrey last fall along with members of BC’s Sherlock Holmes Society who called the production a “wonderfully hilarious spoof.”
