Jarr my bes pal in da whole whirl.
Jarr my life, Pig.
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 take 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).
Following a critically-acclaimed run at Trafalgar Studios in summer 2017, the 20th anniversary production of Disco Pigs transfers to The Irish Repertory Theatre starring Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter, My Name is Emily) and Colin Campbell (Dublin by Lamplight, Through A Glass Darkly).
Disco Pigs ran at Irish Rep from Fri 5 January - Sun 4th March 2018.
