Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch to lead Disco Pigs at Trafalgar Studios 2
Enda Walsh's play returns to London.
Marking the 20th anniversary of this explosive two-hander, this new production will star Evanna Lynch and Colin Campbell.

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."
Enda Walsh said of the news: "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".
Directed by John Haidar the production will feature design by Richard Kent, lighting by Elliot Griggs, sound design by Giles Thomas and movement by Naomi Said. It is produced by Tara Finney Productions.
Evanna Lynch is best know for playing Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter films. Her TV work includes 'Sinbad for Sky' and 'Danny the Human Zoo' by Lenny Henry for ITV. Colin Campbell's credits include Through A Glass Darkly at Project Arts Centre Space Upstairs.
