More about The Hound of the Baskervilles

The Actors' Church is delighted to announce the return of Illyria Theatre following a sell-out run last year.

Who killed Sir Charles Baskerville? And how does a ghostly hound manage to leave vast paw-prints and other unwelcome evidence of its existence?

The original and greatest literary detective of them all, Sherlock Holmes, and his assistant Doctor Watson, tackle the most baffling case of their careers in this cheeky but chilling adaptation. From the eerie moonlit landscapes of Dartmoor to cryptic clues, this gripping adaptation promises an irresistible blend of tension and wit. Performed in the great outdoors by Illyria, prepare for an unforgettable evening of mystery, intrigue and things that go ‘grrrr’ in the night!

About Illyria Our mission is simple: to create outstandingly enjoyable theatre and make it available for everyone. We’ve been pursuing this mission for over thirty years, performed for more than a million people, and intend to entertain families across the country for many more seasons to come.

The Actors' Church

Bedford Street , London, WC2E 9ED
View Seating Plan

In 1631, Inigo Jones was commissioned by the 14th Earl of Bedford to design a square, surrounded by mansions, a church and four streets. Work on the church began in 1631, and was completed in 1633, at a cost of £4,000. The church was consecrated in 1638, and dedicated to St Paul.

People often ask why the great east door onto the piazza doesn’t open. Inigo Jones’ original intention was that this should be the main entrance with the Altar at the West End of the church. However, this went against Christian tradition where the Altar is normally placed at the east end. At the last moment therefore, the Altar was placed at the East end and Portico door is in fact a fake!

The Painter JMW Turner and WS Gilbert (of Gilbert & Sullivan fame), and Thomas Arne (the composer of Rule Brittania) are amongst the many famous people baptised at St Paul’s.
Among those buried at St Paul’s are Samuel Butler and the woodcarver Ginling Gibbons as was the first victim of the Great Plague of London - Margaret Porteous on 12th April 1665.
Burials ceased in the 1850’s, when all burials in central London churches were closed by Act of Parliament. At that point, the headstones were removed, and the gardens laid out as you see them today.

In 1788, Thomas Hardwick began a major restoration but in 1795 there was a terrible fire which destroyed much of the original structure. The Parish records were saved as was the pulpit, the work of Grinling Gibbons or one of his pupils and the church was restored largely to Jones’ original design. Further changes were undertaken by Butterfield in 1872.
