That which is clearly known hath less terror than that which is but hinted at and guessed.” The Legend of the Baskerville Hound.

See Sherlock Holmes as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle intended…  in the imagination!

In their inimitable style, Wireless Mystery Theatre turns the immortal mystery into a live, old-time radio broadcast. This special new adaptation uses music, sound effects and audience participation to create a rollicking caper, full of retro charm, high energy, and dark, Gothic fun. Part Benedict Cumberbatch, part Robert Downey Junior, all Sherlock Holmes.

Hound Baskervilles portraitMysterious, hilarious and fun, The Hound of the Baskervilles brings together a stellar cast of WMT regulars, a lively ensemble of piano, violin, mandolin, and guitar, as well as the usual bells and whistles to present The Ballade of Baskerville and the puzzling truth behind it.

Belfast-based Wireless Mystery Theatre is Northern Ireland’s only audio-theatre company, producing plays for live performance as well as broadcast. The company have been commissioned by BBC Radio 3 – The Proms, BBC Radio 4, BBC NI, BBC Scotland and RTE, as well as creating bespoke pieces for The Arts and Business Awards 2012 (which won a CIPR Pride Gold award) and for The Ulster Hall. The company’s production of A Christmas Carol played to full houses two years running in the Ulster Hall and their Spring 2014 production of Noel Coward’s Brief Encounter sold-out a week-long run in the Grand Opera House, Belfast.
