History of Fair Pley
Established in 2003, Fair Pley is a Glasgow-based arts production company. We produce, develop and promote a range of events, including theatre, comedy, music, and special events.
In the last decade and beyond, Fair Pley has delivered and developed projects working with a broad range of theatres, co-producers, and partner organisations- including Scottish Prison Service (SPS), The Co-operative, housing associations, tertiary education institutions, Trade Unions and a range of third sector organisations, national charities and voluntary organisations, as well as commercial partners.
We continue to work collaboratively with a number of leading Scottish actors, musicians, performers, playwrights and poets. This has included commissioning and touring original drama, publishing books and producing original pieces of music. The “Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas” is an ongoing collaboration with Edinburgh’s universities to promote academics’ wider engagement with non-academic audiences in a stimulating and unconventional format.
We have produced events at major festivals, including Edinburgh Fringe, Celtic Connections, Aye Write, Belladrum Tartan Heart festival, Glasgow International Comedy festival, amongst others and have established a strong reputation in delivering professional event management, theatre and music tours, publishing and recording.
The breakthrough success “In Conversation with…” is an on-going series of intimate conversations with some of the countries biggest names. The main showcase for these events is at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where we have welcomed notable people from across film, television, comedy, politics, sport and art to sell out audiences.
We are proud to have developed employment and training opportunities for young people in a variety of arts-based settings. Our strong links with The City of Glasgow College is testament to this commitment.
Fair Pley is run by Stephen Wright and Fraser Milroy. Between us we have extensive experience… in what, it isn’t clear.
