Oi! You looking at my pie Pal? Take a dive in to this box of dramatic delights…

Our friends at the Traverse announce their new kick-act season of eclectic sweetmeats.

The rehearsal room is positively bursting with energy as Girl in the Machine nears its world premiere, taking to the Traverse 1 stage from 3 April.

Next week kicks off with the Scottish premiere of Offside, a lyrical and punchy piece putting the inequalities faced by female footballers centre stage. However, they’re swapping the traditional pre-match pie for A Play, A Pie and A Pint which is soon to make a welcome return to the Traverse.
