The Barn Theatre in Cirencester is quickly establishing a reputation as “the best theatre in the Cotswolds”. And Wilts & Glos Standard’s critic confirmed it after seeing Joseph O’Malley’s current hit production of Sherlock Holmes comedy The Hound of the Baskervilles. We’ve rounded up review highlights below for this #theatreworthgtravellingfor. Time to get booking!
The Hound of the Baskervilles continues until 24 November 2018 at Cirencester’s new state-of-the-art Barn Theatre, which opened its doors earlier this year.
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 his death, and investigate the ancient curse of the Hound of the Baskervilles.
In the cast, recent Bristol Old Vic graduate Herb Cuanalo dons Holmes’ famous deerstalker hat with Hywell Dowsell as Watson and Dominic Brewer completing the trio. They play fourteen roles in total between them.
This comic staging of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle‘s classic 1902 crime novel was originally written by John Nicholson and Steven Canny for comedy troupe Peepolykus. The Barn’s new production is directed by Joseph O’Malley and designed by Elin Steele.
The Hound of the Baskervilles runs 24 October to 24 November 2018 at The Barn, 5 Beeches Road, Cirencester GL7 1BN. Performances are Mondays to Saturdays at 7.30pm, with Thursday and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm. Tickets are priced £15-30. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
