Chance encounters, family insecurities and views of dystopian futures – all themes to be explored at The Traverse Theatre in March as part of its successful A Play, A Pie, And a Pint season.
The second collaboration with Glagow’s Òran Mór, last year’s programme of lunchtime plays was a huge success. As well as providing sustenance for the mind, the £10 ticket price also includes physical fuel, in the form of a pie and a pint (optional!).
A different play runs for each week during March, beginning on the 2nd with Heaven (2 – 6 March), directed by the Traverse’s own Artistic Director, Dominic Hill.
The run finishes on the 3rd April with the last performance of Zinnie Harris’ The Garden (30 March – 3 April), a glimpse into a future devastated by the effects of climate change.
In between you can enjoy The Shattered Head, inspired by the life and works of Edinburgh-born artist Eduardo Paolozzi (9 – 13 March); Soup, a tale of family tension set in Morningside (16 -20 March); and Battery Farm, a dark comedy about the future of care for the elderly (23 – 27 March).
A Play, A Pie, And A Pint provides a great excuse to escape the trials and tribulations of the day and enjoy some new, cutting-edge theatre.
We leave it to you and the rest of your day’s schedule to decide if you accompany it with a pint – though we have it on very good authority that the pies are great!
