Sweet Dreams, Ron Butlin's first original stage play, will be on at Oran Mor in Glasgow from 28 May to 2 June. It’s a comedy with a serious centre. We caught up with Ron recently, after his part in Dear Glasgow at the Traverse Theatre, and heard all about his forthcoming adventures over a pie and a cup of tea. Of Sweet Dreams, he said: 'This is my first stage play and I must say I've enjoyed immensely getting to know theatre. I'm looking forward to writing more.'

You can find out more about Sweet Dreams on A Play, a Pie and a Pint's website.

Ron has been Edinburgh Makar since June 2008. Read more about our Makars.
