Original Theatre Company has announced its recent touring production of The Hound of the Baskervilles will stream online.
The award-winning Original Theatre Company and Octagon Theatre Bolton’s acclaimed 2021/22 tour of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most celebrated adventure will be available on demand online from 14 April at 7.30pm until 31 July 2022
The whodunnit for all ages stars Jake Ferretti (The Kitchen, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, The Understudy) as Sherlock Holmes, Serena Manteghi (Welcome To Iran, To Build a Rocket, Mrs Wilson) as Sir Henry and Niall Ransome as Dr. Watson (Mischief Movie Night, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, Fcuk’d).
Adapted for the stage by Steven Canny and John Nicholson for Peepolykus, in a production which was first performed at the Octagon Theatre in summer 2021, the classic detective tale gets a brilliantly farcical overhaul in Lotte Wakeham’s acclaimed production which is directed on tour by Tim Jackson.
A hit in the West End, this ingenious adaptation combines an exhilarating collision of farce, theatrical invention and wonderfully comic performances to offer a brand-new twist on the greatest detective story of all time.
Alastair Whatley, Artistic Director of Original Theatre, said: “Necessity forced our hand in 2020 as we took our first steps into making work online. As much as the past two years have been profoundly challenging for all of us in the industry, they have also opened doors to explore a new way of working which in turn has led us to develop a new and exciting hybrid form of theatre.
“It’s been a period of huge change but also great innovation which is opening up access to theatre like we’ve never been able to do previously.”
The Hound of the Baskervilles joins Original Theatre’s exciting on demand Spring line-up including Marcus Brigstocke’s The Red (available 16 March – 16 June), Into The Night (until 31 August), THE SYSTEM (until 31 August), Being Mr Wickham (until 30 April) and A Splinter Of Ice (31 March).
