Otter Pie is a darkly hilarious exploration of the pursuit of Scottishness and happiness in the 21st century from acclaimed young Glasgow theatre company Fish & Game. The show embarks on a major Scottish tour this Autumn.
Based around a tongue-in-cheek re-interpretation of that seminal Scottish novel (and Gordon Brown’s favourite read) Sunset Song, Otter Pie teases out some of the thornier questions lurking in the nation’s psyche. How can we proudly celebrate our rich culture without feeling like a tourist to our own past? How do we combat our negativity and crisis in confidence?
An original production devised by the company, Otter Pie is energetic, moving and cheekily irreverent. It bridges the gap between mainstream and experimental theatre by questioning tradition and convention whilst being unashamedly entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny. The piece has enjoyed previous success at Glasgow's Tramway in 2007, selling out two runs, and will finish its tour there in December, giving Glasgow audiences one last chance to try a slice of the pie.
