About A Play, A Pie and A Pint: McGonagall’s Chronicles
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Produced by A Play, A Pie and A Pint, Òran Mór
Presented by the Traverse Theatre
By Gary McNair
A biography of the late Dundonian poet Sir William Topaz McGonagall, written in ‘almost rhyming verse’ - the only way to honour the man who has come to be known as the world’s worst poet. Performed by Gary McNair, the play charts the poet’s life story and gets to the heart of the dilemma that surrounds his legend - is it okay to laugh at someone’s obvious and relentless failings?
A popular feature of the Traverse programme, A Play, A Pie and A Pint, Òran Mór returns with five new plays to light up your lunchtime. Ticket includes a pie and a drink.
A play, a pie and a pint of beer/125ml glass of house wine or a regular glass of Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, lemonade, orange juice, filter coffee or tea.
A vibrant mix of themes, characters and stories.
