Hound Of The Baskervilles
The Hound Of The Baskervilles – East Riding Theatre.
“They are supported by a wonderful soundscape and music by Damian Coldwell. Overdramatic chords, creaking doors, howling dogs and some luscious piano accompaniment help to generate the world of mock melodrama and silliness. ERT has always had excellent design teams and this production is no exception.” – Richard Vergette – British Theatre Guide
