Three firsts from Peepolykus

1996: Let The Donkey Go

The company's debut was an Edinburgh hit, where they defined their style with an unlikely yarn about inept secret policeman apprehending a suspect for being, well, a suspect. Since then, the show has toured 18 countries.

2002: Rhinoceros

This is where Peepolykus showed off their absurdist roots to the fore with a look at Eugene Ionesco's classic play set in a small French town whose inhabitants are struck down with Rhinoceritus. It was also the first time the company used text in their work.

2007: The Hound of The Baskervilles

The first Peepolykus reinvention of Arthur Conan Doyle's back catalogue was also the first time they worked with Traverse director Orla O'Loughlin. The production sold out West Yorkshire Playhouse before transferring to the West End.
