Top notch production! I haven't read the original so I don't know if this was a faithful adaptation, but it was an excellent play. Actors were very professional, delightful. Costumes and sets just right. Theater is stylish and comfortable. ...continued

The show was good, but not great. It was a little bit too melodramatic for our taste. However, the acting was very good, the set was very well done, and it is always a pleasure to go to a small local theatre.

Description

The Repertory East Playhouse will return to its Main Stage Season with the chilling crime drama Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of the Baskervilles, adapted by F. Andrew Leslie, from the novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Perhaps the most famous and popular of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries this gripping tale deals with the curse of the Baskerville family — and the fiendish killer-hound which stalks its members. As the action begins Sir Charles Baskerville has died under mysterious circumstances, and his nephew and heir, the young Sir Henry, has been threatened even before his arrival at Baskerville Hall. Enlisting the aid of Sherlock Holmes he sets out for his ancestral home on the Devon moor in the company of Dr. Watson, Holmes’ trusted colleague, a journey which brings him to danger, mystery and a series of events which build steadily in menace and suspense. Hard pressed to protect his charge, and to fathom the strange mishaps which beset him, Dr. Watson is much relieved when Holmes himself appears—to trap the diabolical killer who stalks Sir Henry and to unravel the fascinating mystery which accounts for his evil actions.
