ONE of Scotland’s most popular theatres is bringing back its play, pie and a pint series.
The Traverse, Edinburgh, offers – as the name suggests – a snack, drink and thespian goodness for the all-inclusive price of £12.
Traverse Theatre Artistic Director Orla O’Loughlin said the lunchtime series has “a reputation for presenting some of the most exciting, raw new writing”.
Leviathan, in collaboration with Sherman Cymru, gets the season underway with a new play by Welsh playwright, Matthew Trevannion (Bruised).
Three generations of women soak up the last of the sun’s rays in their back garden in the Welsh Valleys, where underlying tensions between the three of them are brought to boiling point in this rich poetic drama.
Leviathan is directed by Sherman Cymru Artistic Director Rachel O’Riordan.
The rest of the season comprises The Day the Pope Emptied Croy by Martin McCormick, Take the Rubbish Out, Sasha by Natalia Vorozhbyt, Fat Alice by Alison Carr and Broth by Tim Primrose
The season runs from Tuesday 17 March until Saturday 18 April, with performances at 1pm and a 7pm performance on Fridays.
