“ Thrilling vigour and jabbering energy … Kickass performances ”

The Guardian

“ Funny and terrifying at the same time, Disco Pigs is superb ”

The Independent

  • Written by Enda Walsh

  • Produced with Nick Thompson Productions

Born seconds apart, Darren and Sinead, aka Pig and Runt, live in a fantasy world all of their own in Cork City. Trash TV, Disco beats and a load of cheap booze have fuelled this obsessive friendship. But as they go for their 17th birthday binge, reality violently collides with their fantasy and their world begins to crumble.

Disco Pigs is a furious, funny and violent dash through a lifelong friendship at the moment of its savage destruction.

This production first played a sell out extended run at the Young Vic Theatre in 2011.
