Raconteur Radio Presents The Hound of the Baskervilles: a Staged Radio Play

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ. A man’s unexplained death. A fearsome family legend. A haunting heathland howl.

 

Sherlock Holmes lovers: come enjoy the story of famous detective and his good friend Doctor Watson on one of their most famous (and darkest) adventures.  On Saturday, June 20 at 2 p.m., the East Brunswick Public Library will host critically acclaimed Raconteur Radio’s production of The Hound of the Baskervilles.  Raconteur Radio recreates the experience of radio plays of the Golden Age, from props to costumes to the iconic “fat boy” microphone.

The eerie mists of Dartmoor and the black block of Baskerville Hall are the setting for this chilling program, based on the classic Arthur Conan Doyle novel. Into this atmosphere of melancholy moors, sinister secrets, deadly threats, and canine apparitions comes the supremely rational Sherlock Holmes—a man described by his friend Watson as "the most perfect reasoning machine the world has ever seen."

“Beware the moor in those dark hours when evil is exalted,” the superstitious denizens of Devonshire caution the good detective. But the hunt is on as Holmes and Watson, in their most terrifying case, ignore the warnings and search for their four-legged suspect, hoping the hulking hound proves, when all is said and done, to be more delusion than demon.

Come be immersed in the fog of the moors, and be taken back in time to Dartmoor in Devon of England’s West Country.

 

The performance features Laurence Mintz as Sherlock Holmes, Michael Jarmus as Dr. John Watson, and Jason Jackson as Sir Henry Baskerville (and assorted other characters).  This production is recommended for ages 8 and up.

 

This program is co-sponsored by the Friends of the East Brunswick Public Library and the East Brunswick Arts Commission.

 

Raconteur Radio stages theatrical presentations of vintage radio plays, great works of literature, and pop culture parodies for live audiences throughout the tri-state area. For more info visit http://raconteurradionj.blogspot.com/
