Aug 22-27 - Ghillie Dhu - Auditorium
The musical history lesson that no one asked for but everyone needs! A Play, A Pie and A Pint shares the true(ish) story of our nation: its past, present and future, its triumphs and failures, all told by a figure who has seen it all... Scotland’s greatest invention and storyteller, The Toilet! From award-winning duo Noisemaker, Scots is an irreverent and rousing musical journey through the history of Scotland, that replays some of our nation’s most iconic (and forgotten) stories to answer the fundamental question: What makes a country? Ticket includes a pie and a pint. Part of MadeInScotlandShowcase.com.
There are several Fringe shows that sound strange to describe - "You should go see this show about a toilet that sings about the history of Scotland. I mean, there are scenes that'll make you cry in your beer, and others that will make you cheer with joy. Also you get lunch." Yet this is SCOTS from Glasgow-based A Play, A Pie and A Pint that takes the audience on a trip through Scotland's people, from Kenneth MacAlpin to MSP Monica Lennon.
Any historical telling can simply go through a catalogue of kings and queens, but SCOTS dives deeper into the people who charted the course of Scotland. There is a question posed on a back wall during the show - "What Makes A Country?" Is it the inventions produced by the people that changed the world? Is it the amazing women who made their voices heard? Is it social progress? It's up to the audience to figure it out - and to see how all this centers on those who use the toilet. As with all shows from this theatre company, the audience does get a pie and pint to enjoy during the show. Whether you're Scottish or not, this production is dynamic from all the players - this is one of the top shows you'll be talking about during the Fringe. - Phillip Gilfus
