New Season Announced: Autumn/Winter 2014 Programme
Welcome to our 21st season of A Play, A Pie and A Pint at Oran Mor! We want to thank all of our audience for their support over the past few months. David MacLennan set up A Play, A Pie and A Pint ten years ago to present audiences in Scotland with a variety of high quality drama at lunchtime. Over the past decade we have grown into a company that produces 38 new plays a year, collaborates with other companies and venues across the UK and internationally and presents the work of writers in the early stages of their careers combined with some of our best loved playwrights. David MacLennan created what is now a celebrated institution in Scotland and we wish to honour his immense achievement by continuing the legacy of A Play, A Pie and A Pint. This season we have a combination of comedies, historical drama and farces amongst others. We are collaborating with political theatre company Theatre Uncut for the first time and continue our relationship with the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh and The Lemon Tree in Aberdeen. This is David’s last curated season and we dedicate all the plays to him.

This Week's Play
It's Only Words
By Sylvia Dow
Directed by Stasi Schaeffer
Featuring Jamie Francis, Kirstin McLean and Eileen Nicholas
Mon 22nd - Sat 27th September
Mrs Moore has locked herself in a cubicle of the public toilet. A toilet covered with graffiti. You could almost classify them, like in a library. Though a lot would be in the ‘pornography’ section of course. Not that she’s ever seen that in a library….
She muses on life, love, libraries and literature, while WPC Hay struggles womanfully to find a way of persuading her to leave. What is the secret which has brought Mrs Moore to this place? And to this point in her life? And what about Joe?
lice’s mum is boracic, and she is wandering the aisles of Poundland looking for summer treats. Alice reaches out to grasp a white rabbit keyring and before she knows it she is on the golden escalator to Plunderland – A parallel universe where no one pays 50pence in the pound tax, and where everything costs the same – a million – but you don’t have to pay for it if you are rich. Travel with Alice and meet Milliedum, Milliedee, The King of Clubs, The Queen of Diamonds, The Fat Cat, The Mad Banker and all your other favourite characters you love to hate.
