When a stranger turns up to drink at the bar alone, he brings with him a wealth of odd tales and an uncanny insight into our lives. As the night progresses, however, we find he is not the only one with a tale to tell.
Come and spend an evening at the pub and witness a meeting of tale tellers. As two bar staff and a mysterious young man pull us into a cycle of mistakes and mischief, the wondrous and the absurd, the unbelievable and the everyday.
A little different in every location, this entriguing new play will grow and change throughout the summer as it travels from pub to pub. Grab a pint, pull up a chair, and join the people who are always listening.
A show that will bar hop its way around Glasgow and Edinburgh on its way to the Fringe, sharing and collecting stories along the way. A Stranger Walks into a Bar fuses the folk tales that have been passed down to us with contemporary overheard-at-the-pub anecdotes. A lively, amusing, and occasionally bizarre celebration of people, everyday life, and the joy of a tale welltold.
The show will alter a little between each venue, continuing to collect material as it travels. It will be accompanied by a blog and a small online archive documenting characters’ travels and the tales they encounter over the summer.
Each night, the audience will also be invited to stay for a drink and a blether with the cast after the show has finished. Tickets £8.50/£6.50.
