NOW the nights are drawing in and Halloween is creeping up what better time for a stage adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s gothic classic The Hound of the Baskervilles at Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC)?

Northern Stage will bring Sherlock Holmes’ most infamous case to life on the PAC stage on Thursday, October, 17 at 7.30pm.

PAC director, Janet Farmer, said: “Northern Stage are an incredibly talented national touring company, with a reputation for reviving classic plays by producing fresh adaptations and bold new works, and their adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles is no exception. We’re delighted to be once again working with a strong northern theatre company, as we pride ourselves on supporting regional theatre companies.

“So whether you’re a Sherlock Holmes fan, a live theatre fan or simply looking for an entertaining way to spend an autumnal evening then come along and see this stunning show.”

The production has been adapted by popular Scottish playwright Douglas Maxwell, and is directed by Jake Smith who began his career at Hull Truck Theatre and is currently artistic director of the award winning Petersfield Shakespeare Festival.
