“This bunch of young Glasgow iconoclasts may have given the theatrical debate about Scottish identity the kick-start it needs.” Joyce MacMillan The Scotsman

Otter Pie is a darkly hilarious exploration of the pursuit of Scottishness and happiness in the 21st century. Based around a tongue-in-cheek re-interpretation of that seminal Scottish novel 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?

Glasgow’s Fish and Game are one of the most hotly tipped young theatre companies in Scotland. At the forefront of a new generation of performance makers, they are challenging and ambitious in their approach but equally unafraid to make work that is accessible, mischievously funny and downright entertaining. They’ve performed as far afield as London, New York and Melbourne and now, following two sell-out runs at Glasgow’s Tramway, they’re embarking on their first major Scottish tour.

This production contains some strong language and is suitable for ages 16+.

What They Say

“Hilariously funny and pungently perceptive. National identity, heritage and culture are hung out to dry and scrutinised for holes in the fabric of nostalgic mythology. What's really impressive, apart from the cast's spot-on comic timing, tuneful singing and willingness to wear awful costumes, is how a cunningly cooked-up joke can contain so many chewy questions about changes in a society and its values."
Mary Brennan, The Herald

“Fish & Game deliver [Otter Pie] with terrific theatricality and flair”
Joyce MacMillan, The Scotsman

“Otter Pie managed to integrate disco choreography, Presbyterian fatalism and sophisticated slap-stick humour into a satisfying meditation on the challenges facing Scotland in the twenty-first century. Although it was approachable and received with wild applause and laughter, Otter Pie moved and provoked, struggling to find a way to explore the complexities and ironies of a devolved country. At a time when national politics can be upsetting and funny for all the wrong reasons, Fish & Game suggest that Scotland is finding a distinctive voice: inclusive and radical, they examined the problems without descending into maudlin self-pity.”
Gareth Vile, G41 Magazine

“I absolutely loved the show.  My only complaint was that I should have been warned that I would need a packet of tissues to wipe away the tears of laughter that streamed down my face for most of the show.” 
Carole Williams, audience member

“The excellent Fish & Game”
