Northern Rep bring Arthur Conan Doyle’s much loved classic, The Hound of the Baskervilles, to Great Northern Warehouse’s new space The Reading Room this week. Northern Rep invite audiences to join Sherlock Holmes and his trusted sidekick Dr Watson as they travel from the streets of London to the Devonshire Moors in an attempt to solve the mystery of, The Hound of the Baskervilles. The intimate city centre setting allows Northern Rep to deliver an evening of fast-paced action as two hugely talented actors take on every role in this riotous romp. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson have never been so funny as they poke fun at the mystery and melodrama of the Moor! Thomas Moore, Artistic Director of Northern Rep, said: “I'm thrilled to be bringing one of Sherlock Holmes' and Dr Watson's most famous adventures to Manchester in its own purpose built theatre: The Reading Room. We've been working hard over the past few months converting a secret corner of The Great Northern Warehouse into an intimate 30 seat theatre that will host The Hound of the Baskervilles. Expect riotous performances from Mr Holmes and Dr Watson as Mrs Hudson takes care of all of your refreshment needs from your seat!" Presented by Northern Rep, adapted and directed by Thomas Moore, and performed in pairs by four cast members - Thea Beyleveld, Christopher Brown, Angela Hazeldine and Michael Justice – who rotate performances. The Hound of the Baskervilles opens on Friday 16th June. Ticket information can be found here. Tickets £12 (Previews from Friday 16 – Monday 19 June tickets £6) 120mins including interval.
