Original Theatre Company and Octagon Theatre Bolton present The Hound of The Baskervilles.
The show, based on the hit book by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, has been adapted for the stage by Steven Canny and John Nicholson. It’s set to be an ingenious adaptation that took the West End by storm, offering a combo of farce, fab staging and great comic performances.
The detective story brings us into Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson’s world as they try to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of Sir Charles Baskerville. Is the rumoured giant hound roaming about to blame?
The Hound of the Baskervilles stars Jake Ferretti (The Kitchen, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, The Understudy) as Sherlock Holmes, Serena Manteghi (Welcome To Iran, To Build a Rocket, Mrs Wilson) as Sir Henry and Niall Ransome as Dr Watson (Mischief Movie Night, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, Fcuk’d).
Director Lotte Wakeham says: “I’ve been blown away by the wonderful response to this production of The Hound of the Baskervilles. It has been a real joy to have audiences back in the theatre, laughing uproariously every night. I’m absolutely thrilled to be teaming up with Original Theatre Company so that this production can now embark on a national tour and be enjoyed even more widely. It’s exactly the sort of joyful, energetic and entertaining show that audiences will be hungry for and I’m delighted to be sharing the Octagon’s work across the UK. Our top-notch cast and superb creative and technical team are raring to go, and we’re looking forward to giving our audiences a fantastic night out.”
Alastair Whatley, Artistic Director of Original Theatre Company, said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with Lotte and her team at the Octagon to bring her superb production of The Hound of Baskervilles to audiences all over the UK.
