Pig and Runt are soul mates. Born seconds apart in the same hospital they are inseparable with an almost supernatural understanding. As partners in crime, they also share an appetite for drunkenness, recklessness, adventure and destruction. But on the eve of their 17th birthday it is an appetite for sex that threatens to tear them apart.
Disco Pigs is a furious, funny and violent dash through a friendship that may be too close to survive. Written by Enda Walsh whose screenplay for Hunger won the Caméra d'Or at Cannes.
'Enda Walsh is one of the most dazzling wordsmiths of contemporary theatre.' The Guardian
Disco Pigs is directed by Cathal Cleary, recently announced as the 2011 winner of the prestigious JMK Award.
