BROUGHTON ASTLEY DRAMA SOCIETY present THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES at Condcordia Theatre Hinckley - WEDNESDAY 20th - SATURDAY 23rd OCTOBER 2010.
The world's most iconic detective continues to prove his appeal is timeless. Recently we have had a Hollywood blockbuster, as well as the terrific modern adaptations on the BBC. Now Sherlock Holmes, together with his faithful associate Doctor Watson, are heading to the Hinckley Concordia Theatre stage for their most famous adventure, The Hound of the Baskervilles. Although written in 1901, Conan-Doyle's story still packs a thrilling punch, with a tense, supernatural atmosphere that Broughton Astley Drama Society aim to capture in their October mainstage production. So what's it about?
A terrifying curse haunts the Baskerville family. Many have died in bloody and inexplicable ways, but is the latest death really the work of a monstrous Hound of Hell? When Holmes and Watson travel to the desolate moorland home of the Baskervilles to investigate, they are faced with their most baffling, most frightening case ever, where one false step means death. With strange lights on the moor, eerie cries in the night, and a house engulfed in evil, the audience are sure to need a steady nerve to survive a night with The Hound of the Baskervilles!
After the radiant warmth of Pride and Prejudice last year, Broughton Astley Drama Society have turned the thermostat in the opposite direction for their 2010 production, with a chilling journey into the heart of darkness. Directed by Jen Hawkins, The Hound of the Baskervilles promises to be another captivating production from this well-regarded society. The cast includes many familiar BADS performers, as well as a number of new faces to the group, all of whom are gnashing at the leash to bring this classic Conan-Doyle tale to life.
So, if you have the courage, book your tickets now for what promises to be a thrilling night at the theatre. Just don’t get too scared, or the Hound may sense your fear…
The show runs from Wednesday 20th to Saturday 23rd October at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8.50 (£7.50 concessions on weds/thurs only). To book call Angie Woods on 0116 2864447, or visit the BADS website: www.badsdrama.co.uk for more information.
