SYNOPSIS:
Holmes and Watson investigate the centuries-old legend of a hound from hell that stalks the Baskerville family in the greatest Sherlock Holmes adventure of them all. We are pleased to be able to say that James Sparling and Adam Bitterman will return for a third time as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. City Lit has a long history with the good doctor and his remarkable friend, and it seems fitting to kick off our milestone anniversary by celebrating with them one more time.
