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