Following their enduring success with staging popular thrillers by the ‘Mistress of Crime’, Agatha Christie, Fareham Musical Society are now proud to present their first foray into the realms of the ‘Master Detective’ – Sherlock Holmes..!

What better way to begin than with the most famous and celebrated adventure of all – The Hound of the Baskervilles.

“The title just says it all, doesn’t it?” says adaptor and director of the show, Nick Scovell. “You know instantly what you will get - a scary, spooky thriller to chill the blood!”

First published in 1901, the story has gone on to be the most dramatized of all the classic Sherlock Holmes stories penned by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It’s mix of mystery and suspense, combined with elements of a classic horror tale have guaranteed its longevity and popular appeal.

“I wanted to make sure we presented a faithful adaptation, so our version sticks very closely to the novel. It really needs no alterations as it really is a spine-chilling classic. We have assembled a top-notch cast and spent much time on creating a fully immersive soundtrack to the piece. It’s more than a play – it’s an experience!”

Staged in the Octagon at Ferneham Hall, the audience will be right in on the action as Sherlock Holmes, aided by his ever-faithful Doctor Watson, investigate the mysterious death of Sir Charles Baskerville and engage in a race against time to save his heir, Sir Henry, from falling foul of the legendary Hound and the machinations of a despicable murderer…
