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
By Andy Duffy
Directed by Emma Callander
Featuring Jamie Michie
Mon 20th - Sat 25th Oct
A Stock trader who's lost his magic touch. Fearful of the future, the markets, of not getting what he wants. The woman he wants. The Son. Fearful of losing them. But love and money can't last forever.
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.

LAST WEEK'S WINNER:
Congratulations to M Clark, who was chosen as the winner for their review of Squash:
Images from Squash
A chained child's bike.
Ma grandly looks down from her imagined eyrie.
It is a pigeon coop from which the ringed Bald is sent to drag up the guilty.
Or the innocent?
Guilty of theft but not of a bike.
There is no bike.
The odd uneasiness of mocking the afflicted.
An intrusive tea trolley but no squash.
Doubts are stilled by the spare writing and powerful acting.
A wee baby dangling.
A deep sadness for a half-life lived clutching the security blanket -or the chain- of the story.
