Coltrane has not appeared on a Scottish stage for 15 years
Film star Robbie Coltrane is to return to the Scottish stage for the first time in 15 years - in a Glasgow pub.

The Scots actor, who starred in the Harry Potter films, is to take a lead role in a play to be performed with a lunchtime pie and a pint.

Coltrane is appearing in The Brother's Suit at Oran Mor in the west end of Glasgow from 11 to 16 April.

The play, part of its A Play, A Pie & A Pint programme, was written by screenwriter Peter McDougall.

Coltrane, who begins rehearsals on Tuesday, said: "I have always been a great admirer of Peter's work and I am delighted to be doing a Peter McDougall play."

The play's producer, David MacLennan, said: "I am very pleased that Robbie is part of our spring season and very much appreciate his support for A Play, A Pie, & A Pint at Oran Mor. It is a typically generous act."
