A Play, A Pie and A Pint – New Season Announced

A Play, A Pie and A Pint is on a short break, but we are pleased to announce we will be returning on 31st August with our new season.

The warmth, openness and continuing appetite for new drama from the Òran Mór audience has now become legendary and we hope that this season we can continue to entice and delight you with a range of new writing that is at turns funny, contemporary, political, moving and exciting. The plays this season have taken inspiration from real life – whether this be the life and work of Samuel Johnson, Aberdeen’s Royal Astronomer David Gill or the inspiring Scottish charity Mary’s Meals. Our attention is also on contemporary politics as the celebrated team behind the Jean Jacques Rousseau Show, Demons, and The Deficit Show bring us another satirical political sketch show one year on from the referendum and four months on from the UK General election.

We continue to try and spread the concept of lunchtime pub theatre across the UK and are working this season with the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh, the Sherman Cymru in Cardiff, the Tobacco Factory in Bristol and Aberdeen Performing Arts.

We are proud to be the most successful and friendliest pub theatre in Scotland and look forward to welcoming you into Òran Mór for some reasonably priced drama, a pie and a beverage, whether this be your first time in the venue or an old friend that we are welcoming back.
