Disco Pigs Tickets

Marking the 20th anniversary of its explosive British debut, Enda Walsh’s Disco Pigs comes to Trafalgar Studios starring Evanna Lynch and Colin Campbell. 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. As we follow these two extraordinary teenagers through the streets of Cork City, drinking and dancing their way into the night, we witness with startling clarity how the nature of friendship can be changed forever. Endlessly playing with their own unique language, it's impossible not to be swept along by their sense of youthful abandon. Desperate for a world beyond their mundane, everyday existence - amidst the bright lights of the Palace Disco - they draw us into their orbit, refusing to let us go.

Our Review

We all know what it's like as you grow up. You live, you learn, you love. Friends come, and friends go. But you have just one friend to take on the world with, losing them means everything. Darren and Sinéad were born in the same place at the same time on the same day (it's the first thing you see in John Haidar's new production of Disco Pigs). They grow up hand-in-hand on the streets of Cork... Read more
