SYNOPSIS: Unleashed, unearthly, and unbelievably funny, this “Hound” is a comic thriller. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most celebrated Sherlock Holmes story gets a makeover by renowned “Brit wits” Steven Canny and John Nicholson. Three actors play 16 roles in a “comedy atlas, using slapstick, witty wordplay, sight gags, disappearing pants, physical comedy, playful props and direct address to the audience.” Why are the Baskerville male heirs so susceptible to dying so young? Is it really a curse? And what about those paw prints?
