An ancient family curse, a desolate moor, a spectral hound and a deranged killer on the loose! The Hound of the Baskervilles is the most celebrated Holmes story of all, a masterpiece of mystery and suspense. One after another, the male heirs of the Baskerville family are being knocked off. Sherlock Holmes, self-proclaimed “greatest detective of all time,” sends Dr. Watson to the countryside in order to prevent more bloodshed, and naturally mayhem (and, in this case wackiness!) of various kinds ensues.

Fans of Jobsite’s previous sold-out productions of The 39 Steps and the (abridged) plays will not want to miss this similarly-veined three-person tour-de-force starring Giles Davies (Sherlock Holmes, et al), David Jenkins (Dr. Watson) and Shawn Paonessa (Sir Henry Baskerville, et al).

In 2007, London’s Peepolykus theater company broke box office records at West Yorkshire Playhouse (also the birthplace of The 39 Steps) with this ingenious adaptation, completely selling out its entire five week run. After touring to Oxford Playhouse, Winchester Theatre Royal, and Liverpool Everyman the show transferred to the West End for a season at The Duchess Theatre, and then finally New York.

… in the post-Christmas lull, silliness is next to godliness. And theatre doesn’t come much more sillier than The Hound of the Baskervilles

… unites constantly inventive physical and verbal comedy with a cheeky respect for the original.


The Hound Leaves Audiences Howling!

Jobsite’s most successful season yet continues with The Hound of the Baskervilles, our first offering of 2014 that sold out the entire first week of performances and left audiences howling with laughter.
