A new behind-the-scenes video has been released for the upcoming 20th anniversary production of Enda Walsh’s play, arriving at the Trafalgar Studios from the 12th July.
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.
Directed by John Haidar and starring Evanna Lynch and Colin Campbell, Disco Pigs examines how friendships can suddenly change.
Enda Walsh’s play originally burst onto the stage at the Edinburgh Festival in 1997 and went on to be awarded the George Devine Award and the Stewart Parker Award.
Talking about the 20th anniversary production Enda Walsh said: ” It seems shocking that Disco Pigs is 20 years old – but I trust that Evanna Lynch and Colin Campbell under the stewardship of John Haidar – will brilliantly send Pig and Runt crashing through their chaotic joint birthday.”
This new production of the play is designed by Richard Kent, lighting by Elliot Griggs, sound by Giles Thomas and is produced by Tara Finney Productions.
Disco Pigs will play at the Trafalgar Studios from the 12th July until the 19th August. To book tickets visit: ATG Tickets, Discount Theatre.com, Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk, Love Theatre.com, Theatre People.com and UK Tickets.co.uk.
