Irish Repertory Theatre presents
The Tara Finney Productions 20th Anniversary Production
on the Francis J. Greenburger Mainstage
by Enda Walsh
directed by John Haidar
starring Evanna Lynch & Colin Campbell
January 5 – February 18, 2018
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).
Marking the 20th anniversary of its explosive British debut, Disco Pigs comes to the Irish Repertory Theatre starring Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter, My Name is Emily) and Colin Campbell (Dublin by Lamplight, Through A Glass Darkly).
