“One of the most magical theatre initiatives of the last decade”
About A Play A Pie & A Pint
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!
