Wednesday 29 December - Theatre

Went to Arnhem this evening to attend a performance of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Hound of the Baskervilles in the local theatre. It was a version where a group of friends decided to reenact the story. The start of the performance was very dramatic: the auditorium was plunged in darkness, a flash of bright light, accompanied by an ear-splitting peal of thunder on the sound system. I was unfamiliar with the story (yep, I'm really into my Sherlock Holmes, not), but found the side-story slightly distracting. Otherwise, once they did get into the nitty-gritty of it, it was quite good. The play lasted for just over 2 hours, leaving us time to catch a bus to the Geitenkamp area of Arnhem, from where we walked home for the last 2 miles.
