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, 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!

Once upon a time, there was an Emperor, who was so rich and spoiled... But we're guessing you know the story. What would this Emperor be like today? Could we still have Emperors in this enlightened 21st Century? Do you expect to be asked po-faced questions like that? Are you expecting the Òran Mór Panto team to take this seriously? If so, this is not the place for you. If you're still a big wean, come and help us celebrate the festive season.  Check in your adulthood at the door, and share a few laughs, a few songs, and a little agitprop for the immature-at-heart.The Usual Suspects bring you a contemporary look at the age-old story of The Emperor's New Clothes.

New Season Announced: Autumn/Winter 2014 Programme

Welcome to our 21st season of A Play, A Pie and A Pint at Oran Mor! We want to thank all of our audience for their support over the past few months. David MacLennan set up A Play, A Pie and A Pint ten years ago to present audiences in Scotland with a variety of high quality drama at lunchtime. Over the past decade we have grown into a company that produces 38 new plays a year, collaborates with other companies and venues across the UK and internationally and presents the work of writers in the early stages of their careers combined with some of our best loved playwrights. David MacLennan created what is now a celebrated institution in Scotland and we wish to honour his immense achievement by continuing the legacy of A Play, A Pie and A Pint. This season we have a combination of comedies, historical drama and farces amongst others. We are collaborating with political theatre company Theatre Uncut for the first time and continue our relationship with the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh and The Lemon Tree in Aberdeen. This is David’s last curated season and we dedicate all the plays to him.

This Week's Play

Flame Proof

By Lesley Hart

Directed by Andy Gray

Featuring Michele Gallagher and Billy Mack

Mon 29th Sept - Sat 4th Oct 

Lyssa’s ex-fiance is getting married in the morning. It may not be her wedding but it will sure as hell be her big day. Buddy is dreading the wedding in the morning. His ex-wife will be there with her new fiancé. Lyssa wants to destroy the wedding. Buddy wants to destroy himself. They could do a lot of damage, should they ever meet. And they do, at 3am in the wedding marquee. Will they survive the night together? Will the wedding go to plan? Whatever happens, there will be fireworks.


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.
