Rehearsals for the 20th anniversary production of Enda Walsh’s play have begun – here’s a glimpse of what has been happening so far…
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 takes hold, they spiral violently out of control.
This new production marking the 20th anniversary since Enda Walsh’s play first hit the stage is directed by John Haidar and is set to star Evanna Lynch and Colin Campbell as Pig and Runt.
Talking about the new 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 includes designs 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.
