Play On! the first film from A Play, a Pie and a Pint premieres Wednesday 5th May.
An empty theatre, a script, eight characters in search of an audience… from the shadows a mysterious figure emerges and a magical adventure begins.
Devised by Morag Fullarton, Play On! is a theatrical adventure through the building of Òran Mór. Filmed under COVID-19 restrictions while the theatre and building are temporarily closed, the 30-minute film takes the viewer on a magical journey encountering eight characters, some familiar and some new.
Directed by Morag Fullarton and David Hayman, Play On! is a joyous celebration of the hit theatre pieces which have been born at A Play, a Pie and a Pint whilst looking forward to the future of theatre, inviting audiences to return when they can.
The film will be released on Wednesday 5th May and will be made available for free worldwide (for a year) on A Play, a Pie and a Pint’s YouTube channel.
Play On! features extracts by Peter Arnott, Hilary Brooks & Clive King, Stuart Hepburn, Liz Lochhead, David MacLennan, Andy McGregor and Benny Young.
