Oran Mor

A Play, a Pie and a Pint

“arguably the best-value cultural event in the country”

Dear Glasgow

In partnership with the National Theatre of Scotland

Seven established authors from cities around the Arab world write a letter direct to the audience in Glasgow. Novelists, poets and essayists such as Raja Shehadeh and Adhaf Souief have been commissioned to write these letters as a response to current events in their countries. The essays will be read by some of Scotland’s own established writers.

    As a regular drop-in-spur-of-the-moment regular!, I was disappointed in this production… four authors reading a letter from ?!?! who cares! It could have been Dear Edinburgh, Dear Stornoway, Dear Catmandoo… until now I have never needed to research what was going to be on stage in your prestigious, Play, Pie, Pint catalogue… now, I fear, I will have to look into each production prior to attendance and paying out my £25 for two… authors, in my opinion, ain’t that good at reading out their own stuff, let alone this… they are not actors… it was a shame, as I had brought my mother along for her 82nd birthday treat… no play, no laughs, no comedy… the footware of the four was actually more interesting than the letters! please go back to your roots of real plays… your pies excel as usual… regards, Kenny
