Winter 2013

In January/February 2014, The Castle Players presented Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles, adapted by Jill Cole. The show toured local venues across Teesdale and beyond.

This terrifying tale, set on a remote and desolate moor, saw Sherlock Holmes and his faithful companion Doctor Watson attempt to solve the case of the mysterious hound that has cursed the Baskerville family for generations.

As the new Sir Henry Baskerville took ownership of the family home, Holmes and Watson encountered an array of local characters who were not all they appeared to be...

This action-packed and bloodcurdling horror story was not for the faint-hearted!
