Arthur Conan Doyle visits the Traverse this Christmas

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 tuned.

The Arthur Conan Doyle Appreciation Society  is at the Traverse Theatre Thursday 6 - Saturday 22 December. Previews  Tuesday 4 & Wednesday 5 December.
