A Play, A Pint & A Pie

In an homage to the great tradition of Glasgow, Scotland theater, ESL presents the second annual A Play, A Pint & A Pie one-act play festival. This one night only outdoor event, for patrons 13 and older, will present five original one-act comedy plays (15–20 minutes ea). Your ticket includes a pint of ale (or root beer for those under 21 years old) and a pie from Thwaites Market. A judging panel will vote for a winning writer, and audience members will get to vote for their favorite too! Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the show.

This year's selected original one-act plays are:
