An award winning evening of new theatre at The Cockpit.

Theatre In The Pound is a not for profit evening of new drama, writing, cabaret, physical theatre, and all kinds of everything theatrical, helping artists develop their work with support and feedback ...and it only costs a pound


Next one: 20th May 2019 

...If We Tolerate This
By Oddbod Theatre Company 

A piece that looks at the issue of toxic masculinity. 
Putting men and their behaviours under the microscope with 4 monologues, dissecting attitudes and conduct. 
They aim not to provide answers but to stimulate debate, we are all in this together after all !

You're So Like Me
By William Wyld

A comedy, a drag act, and a tragic family saga that tackles issues around identity, transvestism, mental health, addiction and growing up, and is aimed at anyone who's ever hated someone they loved.

Life Of Lila 
By Natasha McKinnon

Lila's life is positively normal. Too normal in fact, until she does something about it. Follow her from adolescence to adulthood, in a life fraught with optimism, tragedy, and a filthy mouth, as is the Glasgow way.
