Mini Musicals 2018 Announced!

Back by popular demand, A Play, a Pie and a Pint are delighted to present another season of brand new Mini Musicals!

This year’s thrilling line up will have you shimmying to the hot Latin beat of Carmen, chilling out in the cool of a remote Scottish Island, taking the temperature as clouds gather in ancient Greece and feeling the fear of First Lady Melania as she faces the Oval Office ghosts.

Will a philosophy school for wastrels change the ways of a gambling-obsessed youth? Is there life after mobile phones? Is Carmen willing to die for love? Will a Matador turn up in Cranhill? Can we squeeze a four act opera into fifty minutes? And find out the answer to the question on everyone’s lips: can Melania sing?!?

Following another hugely popular run in 2017, the third season of mini musicals is set to be packed. Don’t miss out on the hottest ticket in town!

THE THINKERY

by Brian James O’Sullivan

A son with a gambling problem.

A father with mounting debt.

A philosophy school for wastrels.

Oh aye, and we’re in ancient Greece!

Inspired by Aristophanes’ The Clouds, this new musical follows Strepsiades and Pheidippides as they attempt to clear their debts. With a little help from Socrates and his beloved Clouds, Pheidippides learns to argue his way out of anything! Will this elevate him to the high life or bring his world crashing down?

MELANIA

by Brooks & King

It’s a long way from the Eastern Bloc to the East Wing – and for one former glamour model turned FLOTUS it hasn’t been a happy journey.  Can the ghosts of Eleanor Roosevelt and Jackie Kennedy lift our heroine’s spirits and show her what it really means to be First Lady? A brand new musical comedy from the creators of Wee Free! The Musical.
