A Play, A Pie and A Pint has announced the appointment of Brian Logan as its new artistic director and CEO.

Based at Òran Mór in the West End of Glasgow, the theatre company is one of the most prolific producers of new comedy writing in the UK, with its core principle being to present a new play every week at lunchtime, which lasts for under an hour, with a pie and a pint included in the price of every ticket. 2024 marks its 20th anniversary, with over 600 drama and comedy plays produced to date.

Logan will start at the end of July 2024, following the departure of Jemima Levick earlier this year. Originally from Scotland, he is a writer and theatre-maker who has been the artistic director at Camden People's Theatre in London since 2011. He is also The Guardian's comedy critic and regularly writes columns about comedy for the newspaper.

He says: "I couldn't be more excited to join the team at A Play, A Pie and A Pint. I am in awe of what's been achieved there in the last twenty years, and it's a privilege to be given the chance to help take its story forward. Everything that happens there - supporting new talent, telling amazing stories for Scotland and beyond, and bringing audiences together in a friendly space - excites me, and I can't wait to get to know everyone and get stuck in."

Kevin O'Sullivan and Edward Crozier, Chair & Vice Chair on the Board of Trustees, say: "The Trustees are delighted to welcome Brian aboard to take on the reins of A Play, A Pie and A Pint at a very exciting time as we celebrate our 20th anniversary and the enduring creative vision of our founders David McLennan and Colin Beattie. Brian stood out with his extraordinary theatrical experience, and we are thrilled that he is returning to Scotland for this role that will continue the outstanding work our recent artistic director Jemima Levick brought to the position."
