Disco Pigs at Smock Alley Theatre
November 4, 2013
Pig and Runt are born into mediocrity, moments apart in ‘Pork’ City. Cocooning themselves against the averageness of the everyday, their babified almost animalistic talk imbues them with a sense of being apart, of escaping the ordinary and humdrum, the threat that they are just more flies buzzing around the dung hole that is “the real capital”. But real life has begun to reveal itself, and as Runt starts to take those first tender steps towards spreading her wings, Pig desperately tries to clip them.
