'a gripping coming-of-age drama'
Radio Times, Play of the Week
'Go see it!'
Born at the same time on the same day in the same hospital, Pig and Runt have been inseparable ever since. They speak in their own language, play by their own rules, and create a world for themselves in which boundaries blur between truth and illusion. Until, on their seventeenth birthday, they discover something more. As night falls, and the disco and drink takes hold, they spiral violently out of control.
Enda Walsh’s breathtaking breakthrough play, Disco Pigs, ‘didn’t so much debut at the 1997 Edinburgh Fringe as erupt there’ (The Guardian), and was awarded both the George Devine Award and the Stewart Parker Award. Enda’s other accolades include the Caméra d’Or for his screenplay for Hunger and the Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical for Once.
Marking the 20th anniversary of its explosive British debut, Disco Pigs comes to Trafalgar Studios starring Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter, My Name is Emily) and Colin Campbell (Dublin by Lamplight, Through A Glass Darkly).
