We are seeking a talented, skilled, and experienced Artistic Director and Chief Executive to lead the organisation through to its next phase of its journey.

Glasgow Lunchtime Theatre, trading as A Play, A Pie and A Pint runs a year-round programme designed to excite, inspire, and engage the audiences and artists with whom we work. Described by The Herald as a ‘cultural phenomenon’, our vision is to create Theatre For All. Our Programme is inspired by audiences and artists and celebrates the craft of playwriting, serving as the beating heart of new work for Scotland; we are small in scale, but big in impact. We produce a new play each week for 30 weeks of the year, with a pie and a pint included in the ticket price.

This is a full time fixed term contract, paid at a rate of £40-42,000 per annum.
If you have demonstrable leadership skills within the arts sector, an excellent track record in making theatre, and the ability to motivate and lead a large team of internal and visiting staff members, we want to hear from you.
