Oran Mor

A Play, a Pie and a Pint

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

The Jean-Jacques Rousseau Show

To celebrate the 250th play commissioned and produced by A Play A Pie and A Pint at Oran Mor we look back to 1762 and the publication of Jean Jaques Rousseau’s The Social Contract. You may be asked to sign a document while sipping your drink and nibbling your pie before the show goes up…

 

SPECIMEN

I  (insert name….. ) being of sound mind, average intelligence and only mildly intoxicated at this hour of the day, do hereby undertake to enter into a SOCIAL CONTRACT whereby I,(insert name etc…), hereinafter referred to as The Punter,  agree to be set free from my chains, whether I like it or not,  in return for which I do solemnly undertake at all times and in all places to put the interests of society as a whole before my own greed, ego, personal needs, indulgences, whims, binges, grudges, jealousies, appetites (gastronomic and sexual), sullen resentments, sure-fire racing tips,  zany self-enrichment schemes etc, so help me God.

Signed

 

This show may seriously damage the health and balance of the Status Quo.

Written by every young, radical firebrand writer we could recruit and a few old gits who have never grown up…

    as an Englishman abroad I have to commend all concerned,reminds me of the political satires of the 1960s good enough for televising.
