Following overwhelming response from previous runs at the Traverse Theatre, Abbey Theatre, Latitude Festival and Scottish Parliament, Locker Room Talk returns to continue a conversation about misogyny and masculinity, and features BAA’s Maureen Carr.
Created in response to the Donald Trump’s infamous “grab them by the pussy” comment, Locker Room Talk is a provocative exploration of how men speak about women in men-only spaces, asking if such sexually abusive rhetoric can really be accepted as mere ‘locker room talk’, or whether such attitudes are much more ingrained and drive abusive behaviour.
Writer Gary McNair interviewed hundreds of men from a wide variety of backgrounds. A selection of these conversations is performed, verbatim, by a cast of 4 women. Each performance is followed by a post-show conversation, giving the audience opportunity to participate, ask questions, examine the issues raised and consider where we go from here.

Playing as part of Oran Mor’s celebration of 500 shows, Chic Murray: A Funny Place for A Window returns to A Play, A Pie and A Pint on 25th March and features BAA’s Maureen Carr.
The “Comedian’s Comedian” Chic Murray passed away in Edinburgh on the night of the 29th of January, 1985. In a career that had taken him from an engineer’s apprenticeship in Kincaid’s Shipyard, Greenock, to the top of the bill at The London Palladium, Chic was a complete one-off.
On what is his last day on this earth, Chic takes a musical look back at the ups and downs, triumphs and tragedies of his glittering, but tragically flawed career.

“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some are still poisoning door handles…”
Empress Evilyin has promised that the people of Escozia will live happily ever after, but no sooner is she elected than the sweet old dear turns into a power crazed despot, banning all manner of pleasures including, pies, tablet and, most fiendishly cruel of all… SINGING! And it’s the jile for anyone who disobeys, oh yes it is!
But the World is not Enough, she sets her sights on Handsome Jack, betrothed to Ravishing Rosie, and will stop at nothing till his pyjamas are next to her nightie. Enter Dame Beanie Bumpherton aka ‘the Human Jukebox’ and Zorra the Masked Singer: their mission – to discover Evilyins deep, dark secret (probably in her Wardrobe) and get her banished to Goolag Achiltibuie.
