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!

Òran Mór’s Lunchtime Summer Panto 2014
Maw Goose by Dave Anderson and David MacLennan
Mondays – Saturdays
7th – 26th July
Oh what a stooshie for poor Maw Goosie. In these days of austerity she can't afford the rent, she's about to lose her job, she could go to jail because she’s filled in some Income Support form incorrectly, her husband is gone because he cannae cope and has mental health issues, the electricity is cut off... but just in the nick of time enter Priscilla, the goose that lays the bullion bombs. Is this just Maw Goosie’s good luck or is there a life and death struggle going on behind the scenes between the Demon King and the Good Fairy? Does everyone have a price and what happens when Maw Goosie enters the Spa of Eternal Youth? Dave Anderson and David MacLennan bring you another lunchtime Summer Panto to ask does everyone have to feather their own nests with goosedown or can we all live happily ever after?

This Week's Play
The Queen of Lucky People by Iain Heggie
Mon 21st - Sat 26th April
Directed by Emma Callander
Featuring Eileen Nicholas
Taking early retirement and discovering the joys of social networking, the shine comes off Patrice French's new life when her technophobic pal Helen goes into hospital with Patrice's old laptop and is short of things to do. Iain Heggie's new comedy The Queen Of Lucky People finds human nature wanting in old familiar ways. Come and meet Patrice, Helen, a dog with a severe barking addiction, a chronically constipated, morbidly obese locksmith, a tough-talking Eastern European nurse and a middle-aged alcoholic who seems to be having an on/off relationship with Patrice's female neighbour upstairs.
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.
