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, China and West Africa and the Caribbean.

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

Flying with Swans

By Jack Dickson

Directed by Alison Peebles

Featuring Kay Gallie, Anne Kidd and Karen Ramsay

Mon 27th Oct - Sat 1st Nov

When three old friends get together for the first time in many years, what should be a simple ferry trip to the Isle of Arran for the arrival of migrating whooper swans becomes the journey of a lifetime. 

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.

Congratulations to Gordon Sutherland, who was chosen as the winner for his review of CRASH: 

I am no critic - I can only express what I see and feel and this monologue held me spellbound!
Tremendously well written and performed, it traced the path of a man's life from being a winner, to disaster and mental confusion.
Every nuance was totally effective and held the audience completely - you could have heard pain drop during the performance.
The audience was also left guessing. I was asked by complete strangers whether I thought Jamie Michie's character had perpetrated violent crimes - that has got to be the sign of a great play and performance. Crash is a must-see!!!

If you are coming along to see this week's play, FLYING WITH SWANS, don't forget to leave a review and you could be picking up the next bottle of Malt whisky!
