Show Information

"Will you look at the day? Beautiful, ah? Summer throws you one of these just before it all goes west."

As three generations of the same family soak up the last of the sun's rays in their back garden, beers in hand, the underlying tensions between the three are brought to boiling point thanks to revelations long buried, whilst also trying to stop the cat from murdering more defenceless birds.

In this tale of familial ties, Matthew Trevannion casts a darkly humorous eye over the changing fortunes of people trying to unmoor themselves from their past.

A Play, A Pie and A Pint

Òran Mór’s groundbreaking lunchtime theatre programme, A Play, A Pie and A Pint (PPP), began in 2004 and now commissions and produces 38 new plays a year. Plays from PPP have been seen at the Edinburgh Festival, the Belfast Festival, the Brighton Festival, the Adelaide Festival, the Island Festival in Tasmania, the Golden Mask Festival in Moscow and the Last Frontier Theatre Festival in Alaska.

Plays from Òran Mór have also been performed in Newcastle, Manchester, Coventry, Bristol, London, Seoul, Beirut, Milan, Amsterdam, Dublin, Bermuda and New York. The Tiny Dynamite Theatre in Philadelphia has done several seasons of A Play, A Pie and A Pint and recently Òran Mór were invited by the British Council in Brazil to help them set up PPP in Sao Paolo.

Where Glasgow leads, the rest of the world follows and now Cardiff is getting in on the action.

Options for the pie include meat or vegetable, for any other dietary requirements please notify a member of staff on point of purchase.
