TheatreWorks is slated to present “The Hound of the Baskervilles” through Sunday at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.
Based on the work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, “Hound” spoofs Sherlock Holmes. The comedy – adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson – involves an ancient family curse, a spectral hound, a deranged killer and a pair of well-known sleuths.
The three-man show was originally staged in 2007 by the British comedy troupe Peepolykus.
Robert Kelley, TheatreWorks founding artistic director, directs the production. TheatreWorks veterans Ron Campbell, Michael Gene Sullivan and Darren Bridgett take on dozens of roles, primarily playing Holmes, Watson and Baskerville, respectively.
“Hound” includes scenic design by Andrea Bechert, costume design by B Modern, lighting design by Steven B. Mannshardt and sound design by Cliff Caruthers.
Performances are scheduled 7:30 p.m. today, 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday.
