Come find out by seeing our brand spanking new production, THE ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE APPRECIATION SOCIETY at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh. The show is directed by Orla O’Loughlin (who directed our version of Baskervilles), written by John and Steve Canny and stars our very own Javier and John who are joined on stage by Gabriel Quigley. The Arthur Conan Doyle Appreciation Society runs from December 4-28th.
“Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of the world’s greatest fictional detective, was also a leading advocate for spiritualism. He even fell out with Harry Houdini over the matter.
Welcome to a very special presentation, where ideas of the rational collide with the supernatural. And very strange things begin to happen.
From The Hound of The Baskervilles to fairies and particle physics, this riotous show fuses lecture, storytelling, slapstick comedy and lightning-fast costume changes to explore some pretty big ideas”.
