The award winning series A Play, A Pie and A Pint returns to the Sherman Theatre with Happy Hour

The hugely popular, A Play, A Pie and A Pint is back with an exciting new play Happy Hour. This is the perfect chance to see great theatre and get both a pie and a pint included in your ticket price of just £12.50. The ground breaking series of short plays comes back to Wales after the success of Leviathan in Spring 2015. The new production is directed by Sherman’s Associate Director, Gethin Evans (Cwmni Pluen) and written by actress turned writer Anita Vettesse. The darkly comic Happy Hour details the petty squabbles and failed aspirations of one family that will resonate long after the curtain call. Returning to the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff, 24- 28 November at 6.30pm.

“We've had a lot of fun bringing this darkly hilarious script to life and I'm looking forward to audiences experiencing the show. It's been very interesting exploring these characters and their relationships within their family. They tease and provoke each other, as families do, but they also each have a unique vulnerability that plays out during the piece. I hope audiences enjoy it (and the pies) as much as we have enjoyed making it! !
Gethin Evans, Director and Associate Director at Sherman Theatre.

The production explores the story of a family gathered in the back room of a pub ready to scatter their Dad's ashes which currently reside in a Nike shoe box. But bitter resentments and long-held grudges might hinder Dad from resting in peace. It is a fun evening of food, drink and drama, the perfect post-work pick me up!

"Did we have to do this on a quiz night?"
"It was his favourite night. Doubled his takings."

The production opened at Òran Mór, Glasgow on Monday 9 November, then heads to Bristol’s Tobacco Factory Theatre, before returning to the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff from Tuesday 24th – Saturday 28 November. The earlier start time of 6.30pm allows audiences to come straight from work to enjoy a pint and a pie, made by Foxy’s Kitchen, before the performance.
