A Play, a Pie and a Pint, Glasgow’s renowned lunchtime theatre experience comes to Bristol for the very first time, with brand new plays from top playwrights.
Last year in Los Angeles the graffiti artist Banksy scrawled “THIS LOOKS A BIT LIKE AN ELEPHANT” on a worthless water tank and turned it into a priceless work of art. Those in the know rose in unison to salute the artist’s latest comment on homelessness – the metaphorical ‘elephant’ in the room. An inevitable land grab followed and the water tank was taken away.
But someone had been living there. For 17 years. And in a cruelly ironic twist of fate this man was now homeless. Because of Banksy. Or so the story goes.
Bristol-based Tom Wainwright has written for Bristol Old Vic, Theatre Bristol, the egg and Hull Truck; previous works including Muscle and Buttercup. The show is directed by Emma Callander, whose recent work includes Supply (a Play, a Pie and a Pint), Digits (Tobacco Factory Theatre) and Truth About Youth (Travelling Light).
