TheatreWorks to Present Spoof of HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES, 4/2-27
TheatreWorks, the nationally acclaimed theatre of Silicon Valley, presents the laugh-a-second send-up of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's brilliant Sherlock Holmes mystery, adapted by Stephen Canny and John Nicholson.
In the wacky style of The 39 Steps, HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES stirs an ancient family curse, a spectral hound, a deranged killer, and a pair of well-known sleuths into a comic masterpiece alive with mystery, suspense, and uproarious fun. Three brilliant actors play dozens of roles as the deerstalkered detective of Baker Street faces off against the colossal canine of the moors. TheatreWorks' Artistic Director Robert Kelley will direct.
