The Hound Of The Baskervilles

The Hound Of The Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson.

Eastbourne Theatres production team return this summer with a fantastically funny, fast paced thriller for all ages starring Andrew Pollard, Ben Roddy and Tom Richardson.

The Hound Of The Baskervilles is brought to you from the team behind last summers spectacular, The Invisible Man and previous shows including, The 39 Steps, Around the World in 80 Days, One Man Two Guvnors and of course Eastbourne’s beloved Devonshire Park pantomimes.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most celebrated adventure gets a brilliantly farcical makeover. When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on his estate, with a look of terror still etched on his face, and the paw prints of a gigantic hound beside his body, the great detective Sherlock Holmes is summoned from Baker Street, with Dr Watson in tow, to unravel the mysteries surrounding his death, and investigate the ancient curse of the Hound of the Baskervilles...

A hit in the West End, this imaginative adaptation offers a brand-new and hilarious twist on the greatest detective story of all time. Serving up a riotously fun couple of hours of entertainment, this is a whodunnit for all ages.

Andrew Pollard takes the role of Sherlock Holmes (among others). With a hugely varied career Andrew makes his Eastbourne debut in this production but his career has spanned over 32 years. He originated the role of Phileas Fogg in Around the World in 80 Days for New Vic Theatre in 2013 and continued his association with the role all the way to Broadway in 2019. Most recently Andrew starred in A Leap in the Dark for New Vic and on the small screen in TV shows including; Emmerdale, Coronation Street, Hollyoaks and Womanhood for BBC.

Devonshire Park favourite Ben Roddy returns as Sherlock’s sidekick Dr Watson following his roles in previous Eastbourne Theatres productions The Invisible Man and Around the World in 80 Days. Other work includes Royal Shakespeare Company’s productions of The Provoked Wife and Venice Preserved. Ben is also resident dame at the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury where he has been wowing audiences for the past 15 years.

Completing the cast is Tom Richardson as Sir Henry Baskerville (for most of the show anyway!), Tom has most recently been seen on TV screens across the UK in Coronation Street, his stage work includes The Mousetrap in the West End and international tour, American tour of Much Ado About Nothing plus UK tours of Dad’s Army. Tom’s no stranger to Eastbourne, he last performed on the Devonshire Park stage in the 2023 London Classic Theatre production of Abigail's Party.
