17.07. - 21.07.2018
A MASTERPIECE OF MYSTERY
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle‘s most celebrated Sherlock Holmes adventure gets a gloriously funny makeover. When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on his estate, with a look of terror still etched on his face and the paw prints of a gigantic hound beside his body, the great detective Sherlock Holmes is summoned from Baker Street, with Dr. Watson in tow, to unravel the mysteries surrounding of his death and investigate the ancient curse of the Hound of the Baskervilles. Cheeky and fast-paced, The Hound of the Baskervilles offers farcical surprises, brilliant theatrical invention, and a new twist on the greatest detective story of all time. Once you‘ve managed to stop laughing this is a Hound that you will never forget. It‘s absolutely barking!
Sir Arthur Conan Doyles Klassiker The Hound of the Baskervilles präsentiert sich in neuem Gewand. Der rätselhafte Tod Sir Charles Baskervilles ruft den renommierten Detektiv Sherlock Holmes auf den Plan. Was zeichnete das schiere Grauen auf Baskervilles Gesicht? Und woher stammen die Spuren übergroßer Hundepfoten neben der Leiche? Mit Dr. Watson im Schlepptau ist es an Holmes, Antworten zu finden und das Geheimnis von Baskerville zu lüften. Dieser neue Hound of the Baskervilles ist aberwitzig, frech, rasant und gibt dieser großartigsten aller Kriminalgeschichten eine neue Wendung. Ein Stück, das Sie zum Lachen bringen wird und das Sie so schnell nicht vergessen werden. „It’s absolutely barking!“
