A Play, a Pie and a Pint

“The success of MacLennan's formula has been stunning”
THE SCOTSMAN

Fly Me To The Moon

He never won any more than a couple a quid, but that was  his life…all he had…his paper , the horses, memories of singing along with Frank Sinatra and a life of misery… he was better off dead in my opinion

Francis and Loretta are broke community care workers.  Davy, one of their charges, has had a posthumous win on the horses and the women grapple with their conscience.   Marie Jones’ new black comedy investigates whether we are valued more in life or in death.

Starring Katie Tumelty and Abigail McGibbon

    If life is a tragedy to those who feel, and a comedy to those who think, then death provides
    a bit of both in this hilarious play by Marie Jones. The ubiquity of the dead Davie means
    that we never lose sight of the serious issues it raises as we follow the exploits of
    Frances and Loretta.The success of the play lies in the fact that as we blink away tears of laughter in the brightness of the day, we are left contemplating important questions about old age, disability and loneliness and wondering what kind of society pays the mimimum wage to those who serve the community so well.
