A Play, A Pie and A Pint produces new plays from Scotland, the UK and the rest of the world at Òran Mór in the West End of Glasgow. Founded by the late David MacLennan in 2004, we produce 38 new plays every year.

We now work with partners across Scotland and UK to present these new works to a wider audience. Our current partners include: Aberdeen Performing Arts; National Theatre of Scotland; Playwrights Studio Scotland; Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh; Sherman Cymru, Cardiff; and Tobacco Factory, Bristol.
We have presented seasons of plays by writers from Latin America, the Arab World, China, West Africa, the Caribbean, Russia and the Ukraine.
