“One of the most magical theatre initiatives of the last decade” – The Scotsman
The Infernal Serpent
Meet Adam and Eve: devoted snake rights activists who are getting nowhere. When a charming stranger arrives with radical ideas, they’re forced to decide how far they’ll go for their cause. The Infernal Serpent puts a devilishly modern twist on an old story to consider why – and how – we protest.
Written by Dave Gerow and directed by Beth Morton, the show is presented by A Play, a Pie and a Pint in association with Dumfries & Galloway Arts Festival.
DAVE GEROW is back to A Play, a Pie and a Pint with his second play. His short fiction has appeared in Gutter, the Malahat Review, Planet, The Frogmore Papers, en bloc, The Cardiff Review, Hobart and elsewhere, and has been shortlisted for the Bridport Prize. He’s a PhD candidate in Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow. He has a lifelong fear of snakes.
BETH MORTON is a director and theatre maker whose most recent works includes the reimagined After The Cuts (Raw Material); Flames (Tricky Hat); Where the Crow Flies (In Motion); #Unplugged (Platform); and After The Cuts, For The Lock of Chekov, Turns of the Tide (Oran Mor). She was associate director on Eric the Elf’s Chaotic Christmas (MacRobert Arts Centre); Glasgow Girls (Pachamama); and Janis Joplin: Full Tilt (Theatre Royal Stratford East) and has worked with the Tron Theatre, Manchester Royal Exchange, and the National Theatre of Scotland.
