The Hound of the Baskervilles

Wednesday 28 August 2024

Elgin Cathedral

Who killed Sir Charles Baskerville? Can anyone prevent the same fate befalling the young Sir Henry Baskerville? Is a monstrous hound really roaming Dartmoor? Why is someone systematically stealing Sir Henry’s shoes? And how does a ghostly hound manage to leave vast paw-prints and other unwelcome evidence of its existence? The original and greatest literary detective of them all, Sherlock Holmes, and his assistant Doctor Watson, tackle the most baffling case of their careers in this faithful, cheeky but chilling adaptation.

Mystery and intrigue reach new heights as the legendary detective duo navigates the treacherous moors and the enigmatic curse that haunts the Baskerville family. From the eerie moonlit landscapes of Dartmoor to cryptic clues, this gripping adaptation promises an irresistible blend of tension and wit. Performed in the great outdoors by Illyria, prepare for an unforgettable evening of mystery, intrigue and things that go ‘grrrr’ in the night!

This is an outdoor event, visitors are to bring their own seating (seats which are rubber footed and don’t penetrate the ground) or picnic blankets. Please also bring appropriate layers for a Scottish summer evening.
