Arthur Conan Doyle visits the Traverse this Christmas
06 November 2012 ← return to listing
We had our first script read through for the Traverse Christmas
show, the second to be directed by Orla O'Loughlin who heads into
what's sure to be four weeks of very fun rehearsals.
There was lots of laughter and it felt almost as if Arthur Conan
Doyle, Harry Houdini, Sherlock Holmes, Doctor Watson were in the
room as actors Javier, Gabriel and John (pictured above) got
to grips with a script which hurtled from sightings of fairies and
a spectral hounds to Professor Brian Cox and particle physics.
Orla will work with the cast over the month to bring this
anarchic show about life, death and the afterlife to the Traverse
stage in December. We'll be giving you sneak previews of the show
on this blog (subscribe here) and
through our monthly podcast series, so stay
Conan Doyle Appreciation Society is at the Traverse
Theatre Thursday 6 - Saturday 22 December. Previews Tuesday 4
