A Play A Pie and A Pint at Òran Mór
Òran Mór’s groundbreaking lunchtime theatre programme, A Play, a Pie and a Pint, began in 2004 and now commissions and produces 38 new plays a year. We produce the work of many of Scotland’s best known writers, as well as presenting the work of new young playwrights. We have also presented seasons of plays from writers from Latin America, the Arab World and China.
Plays from PPP have been seen at the Edinburgh Festival, the Belfast Festival, the Brighton Festival, the Adelaide Festival, the Island Festival in Tasmania, the Golden Mask Festival in Moscow and the Last Frontier Theatre Festival in Alaska.
We’ve also had plays from Òran Mór performed in Newcastle, Manchester, Coventry, Bristol, London, Seoul, Beirut, Milan, Amsterdam, Dublin, Bermuda and New York. The Tiny Dynamite Theatre in Philadelphia has done several seasons of A Play A Pie and a Pint and we recently got invited by the British Council in Brazil to help them set up PPP in Sao Paolo. Where Glasgow leads, the rest of the world follows!

This Week's Play
The Friends of Miss Dorian Gray by Marcella Evaristi
Monday 3rd - Saturday 8th March
Directed by Stasi Schaeffer
Featuring Marcella Evaristi, Janette Foggo and Tom McGovern
‘The tragedy of old age is not that one is old but that one is young.’ Oscar Wilde.
In this ingenious and witty retelling of Oscar Wilde’s story, two middle aged friends, Dolores and Daisy puzzle over the unblemished looks of their strangely youthful contemporary, the gorgeous Miss Dorian Gray.
To the upbeat Daisy, Dorian represents the heady possibility of eternal youth without invasive surgery, but Dolores remains deeply sceptical of Dorian’s explanations . . .
A blackmailed scientist, a murdered painter, aesthetic theories and moral consequences – Marcella Evaristi has deftly reassembled all the elements of the famous story into a sharply original dark comedy.
lice’s mum is boracic, and she is wandering the aisles of Poundland looking for summer treats. Alice reaches out to grasp a white rabbit keyring and before she knows it she is on the golden escalator to Plunderland – A parallel universe where no one pays 50pence in the pound tax, and where everything costs the same – a million – but you don’t have to pay for it if you are rich. Travel with Alice and meet Milliedum, Milliedee, The King of Clubs, The Queen of Diamonds, The Fat Cat, The Mad Banker and all your other favourite characters you love to hate.
