It's all about the Traverse Christmas show in this month's writers' podcast

Any sign of Sherlock Holmes yet? Here's a sneak peek into the rehearsal room of The Arthur Conan Doyle Appreciation Society, the Traverse Theatre's Christmas show.

We've teamed up with masters of physical comedy, Peepolykus, in this anarchic show about death, life and the afterlife. You can listen to how it's all going, here,

This month's writers' podcast is a very fun one indeed, and features not one but two playwrights, direct from our Leith rehearsal room. Co-authors Steven Canny and John Nicholson talk to Hamish Pirie about the challenges and joys of collaborating on this script and their mutual passion for comedy.

We also hear from director Orla O'Loughlin and Peepolykus' Javier Marzan who show us that everyone has a bit of a clown in them and give insight into the journey the script has been on since rehearsal began two weeks ago. Plus, we get a sneak extract from the play performed by John Nicholson, Javier Marzan and Gabriel Quigley.

The Arthur Conan Doyle Appreciation Society previews on 4 & 5 December before opening from 6 - 22 December.
