What the critics said; what you said!

The reviews have started to roll in for The Arthur Conan Doyle Appreciation Society, and the verdict is that this is one of the most entertaining shows around this Christmas!

EdinburghGuide.com praised its "jaw dropping tricks and illusion" (★★★★) and British Theatre Guide.called its mixture of storytelling, slapstick and magic, "a winning comic formula."

The Scotsman reckoned it was, "gently entertaining...beautifully played" (★★★★) while The Arts Desk said it was, "consistently inventive and wonderfully funny" (★★★★). 

The Stage loved its "comedy, pratfalls and deep philosophical investigation" calling it "utterly hilarious" and Edinburgh Evening News said it was "masterful...a story filled with contradictions and comedy, leaving you with more than a little appreciation for Mr Conan Doyle" (★★★★).

Our opening audience thought so too! Check out this video with reactions from our first night. 

The Arthur Conan Doyle Appreciation Society runs at the Travese until Saturday 22 December.
