Alan Muir

Alan Muir's debut play - The Greatest  - was premiered at A Play, A Pie and A Pint in March 2018, telling the tale of a gallus Scottish pensioner who claims he once knocked out the legendary Muhammad Ali.

It proved a remarkable hit with audiences and critics (***** - The Herald, **** - The Scotsman) and returned for a second week's run at the Oran Mor in July 2018.

Alan's second play - Losing the Rag - opens the Autumn season of A Play, A Pie and A Pint in August 2018. It draws on his years as a bewildered journalist in the bizarre world of local newspapers - clinging on for dear life against the rise of Fake News and fake Facebook outrage.

He is currently finishing a follow-up to The Greatest with a variety of new projects written or in the pipeline.

Alan is married, with two kids and a West Highland Terrier who inexplicably barks at people wearing hats. Fun fact - Alan once appeared on The Chase and was called "the world's oldest baby" by a stranger on Twitter.
