Lion Lion – A Play, A Pie and A Pint

BAA’s Selina Boyack stars alongside Keith Fleming & Nick Ikunda in Sue Glover’s Lion Lion, on at Oran Mor’s A Play, A Pie and A Pint from Monday 8th April.

George & Joy Adamson, like many others before and since, loved the animal kingdom as much, probably more, than their fellow humans. They camped for years – decades – in areas where humans were few, but dangerous wildlife teemed around them. With no mobiles, or skype, to relieve isolation, how did they react to the wilderness? When night fell, and they sat with a tilley lamp and a whisky for company, did they conduct themselves like civilised human beings? Draw on the wise intuition of big cats? The family loyalty of elephants, or apes? What furies and feelings surfaced under the stars?

Runs from Monday 8th April – Saturday 13th April

What’s your life worth? In a horribly plausible near future, a government obsessed with capping the spiralling pensions deficit has come up with a price. They’ve even hired one of those arms-length organisations they get to do their dirty work to sell it. In their sights are people like Alan McDonald who have reached their average life expectancy. But Alan is having none of it. Part Swiftian satire, part intimate reflection on what it’s like to grow old, Robert Dawson Scott’s timely new play asks troubling questions about high-pressure sales techniques, self-worth and the dark side of family love.
