A production of the ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’ will be performed next week by students from both King’s and KGGS at the King’s School.

Based on the famous novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the redoubtable Sherlock Holmes (Leo Hall) has to solve an intriguing case that involves an escaped convict, a lugubrious butler, the eccentric naturalist Stapleton (Ben Poole) and his sister, Beryl (Tegan Rowe). Dr Watson is played by Sean Hack and Sir Henry Baskerville by James Clack.

This version by Simon Williams is slightly tongue in cheek and also features an ensemble of ten who play all the minor characters as well as creating the dark, foggy moorland where the giant hound roams. The play runs at 7.30pm from Wednesday 27th to Friday 29th November at the King’s School Hall. Tickets are £5 for adults and £3.50 for concessions available on the door or at reception.
