Twentieth century Limerick comes to life in the America premier of Pigtown, as pork butcher “Tommy Clocks” takes us on a fast-moving, hilarious, and often poignant journey through his hometown. Born on January 1, 1900, and literally speaking form his coffin as the century ends, Tommy has seen it all : ‘The Emergency” of World War II, his city’s notorious attitude toward the Jews, the heartbreak of couples parted by emigration. By turns funny, moving hard-hitting and inhabited with a rich variety of characters, music and song, Mike Finn’s proud and fearless celebration of the city of his birth is a must-see!
