The Hound of the Baskervilles
By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson
Directed by Matt Pfeiffer
May 28 - June 28, 2015

"If you value your life, keep away from the moor!" This mysterious, unsettling note troubles Henry Baskerville on his journey to the desolate moorlands of Baskerville Hall. A terrifying curse has haunted his family for generations and, as the manor's most recent heir, young Henry could be its next victim. Only Sherlock Holmes can help, or he would... if he weren't a bit of a buffoon! One of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most beloved Holmes mysteries gets a zany makeover when performed by a trio of endearing clowns and klutzes. Cheeky and fast-paced, The Hound of the Baskervilles offers farcical surprises, brilliant theatrical invention, and a new twist on the greatest detective of all time.

News & Reviews

"A rousing and rambunctious production! The comedy by Steven Canny and John Nicholson, under Matt Pfeiffer's direction – a triumph of comic timing – is laugh-out-loud, eye-moppingly funny." –Philadelphia Inquirer  more

"A sheer delight!" –WHYY NewsWorks  more

"A lesson in comedy... You know that moment when you and your friends start to laugh about something and just can't stop and from that point on everything is hilarious? That's what the zany production of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Hound of the Baskervilles at the Lantern Theater Company is like. If you're in the mood for a laugh...then this is a play worth seeing." –Broad Street Review  more

"A fast and fun theatrical comedy. Lantern Theater Company's staging, under the ever-skilled direction of Matt Pfeiffer, strikes the right tone, self-aware without being self-indulgent. The key is good casting: three energetic actors [Damon Bonetti, Dave Johnson, Daniel Fredrick] assume all the roles, using fast costume changes (Julia Poiesz) and a joyous recognition of the immediacy of theater to carry the show." –Phindie  more

"Uproarious on every level." –Beyond My Backyard  more
