An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don't.

(18 May 2012)

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.
