Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most celebrated Sherlock Holmes story gets a gloriously funny makeover in this 'wonderfully barking spoof' (Telegraph) adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson. 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. 'The most popular of the Sherlock Holmes stories becomes pure comic bliss' – Stage. 'A mad hilarity that will make you feel quite sane' Sunday Times.

The classic BBC TV comedy series of the Home Guard of Walmington-on-Sea who battle daily against the Germans and local ARP Warden Hodges, comes to the stage complete with all the well-loved characters: "stupid boy" Pike, "Don't panic, don't panic" Jonesey, "Doomed, we're all doomed!" Fraser, "May I be excused, sir?" Godfrey, and all under the command of the redoubtable Captain Mainwaring and his effacing deputy Sergeant Wilson. The play is based on three TV episodes including "The Deadly Attachment" in which Captain Mainwaring shouts the immortal words "Don't tell him, Pike!" - arguably one of the best loved moments of British TV comedy.
