Once again I set off early to Oran Mor to see the fourth of the five plays in the A PLAY, A PIE AND A PINT season, April De Angelis’ CALAIS.
I got on the familiar 0539 train from Euston to ensure I was around for the tech. I think it is the calmest tech I have ever sat in and they even had time for a dress rehearsal before doors open at 1230.
I was able to sit in on a stagger through of the fifth and final play on the season, David Harrower’s GOOD WITH PEOPLE, which is being directed by our very own George Perrin and performed by Blythe Duff and Andrew Scott-Ramsay. It is a fascinating piece, where nothing is, as it seems paired up with electric acting.
Meanwhile the three plays that have already opened at Oran Mor are in various places in the UK: Marie Jones’ FLY ME TO THE MOON opens in Edinburgh tomorrow (in fact Katie Tumelty and Abi McGibbon returned to Glasgow to watch CALAIS so we enjoyed our pies together!) IN THE PIPELINE opens today at Live Theatre Newcastle and THE UNCERTAINTY FILES company take a well deserved week off, and all three of the actors remaining at home in Glasgow.
