A Play, a Pie and a Pint
The award- winning a Play, a Pie and a Pint programme presents new one-act plays at lunchtime. The price of your ticket to see the show also includes a pie and either an alcoholic or soft drink. This season sees three world premieres by Contemporary Chinese playwrights, specially commissioned by the National Theatre of Scotland and Òran Mòr in partnership with SaiTa Cultural Ltd and Tian Qinxin Theatre Studio.
As cities grow at an astonishing rate and power shifts from one generation to the next, we take a glimpse into the lives of a handful of individuals whose stories paint a portrait of a society in flux. Inspired by real events, both intimate and political, each play dramatises the tension between public and private lives, the gap between rich and poor, and the dangers of telling lies to ourselves and others.
