Hound of the Baskervilles

Hound of the Baskervilles
Written by Tim Kelly, from the thriller by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Directed by Keith Jarman
8 – 13 February 1999

Holmes’ most spine-chilling mystery is placed in a modern setting in this version with suspense, humour and terror. Sir Henry is heir to the vast Baskerville fortune, a legacy that comes with a family curse; death at the fangs of a horror that prowls the moor. Only Holmes can stop the beast. While mysterious lights signal Baskerville Hall and the hound terrifies the countryside, the sleuthing begins and suspicion falls on sinister servants, butterfly collectors, ladies in distress and escaped convicts. Who wrote the letter that summoned the hound? Is Sir Henry’s romance with the lovely Kathy doomed? Is the supernatural at work?
