REVIEW: Hound of the Baskervilles @ Great Northern Warehouse, Manchester

Hound of the Baskervilles4It’s Sherlock Holmes as you’ve never seen him before, as Northern Rep serve up their unique interpretation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s creepy classic.

Christopher Brown and Angela Hazeldine in the roles of Holmes and Dr Jane Watson take a small audience through the intriguing tale of murder, greed and deception in the intimate environment of the Reading Room next to the AMC Cinema at the Great Northern Warehouse.

All the ingredients of Conan Doyle’s story are there with the pair pulling off a mammoth effort with fluffed lines all part of the show, with hilarious results.

It’s like having your best friends in your front room performing your favourite and best loved story.

Brown and Hazeldine together with Michael Justice and Thea Beyleveld perform on alternate nights throughout the run until September 16.

This is murder mystery transformed into farce and as long as you are not precious about the tale and up for a laugh, it is well worth a look.

Runs till September 16
