In the W. Scott McLucas Studio Theatre
by Pat McCabe
directed by Joe O’Byrne
January 23- February 18, 1996
Adapted from Patrick McCabe’s acclaimed 1992 novel, The Butcher Boy, Frank Pig Says Hello tells the story of a young boy’s violent breakdown in a rural Irish town.
“Mr. Rocks, in addition to doing full justice to the few complete samples of Mr. McCabe’s lyrical prose, portrays Frank’s schoolmates, family, fellow townspeople and institutional persecutors with a mercurial charm that never forgets the ache beneath the antics. And under Joe O’Byrne’s inventive direction, the men work together with the reflexive precision of a veteran vaudeville team.”- NY Times
