Michaelmas Week 7
'Jarr my bes pal in da whole whirl.'
'Jarr my life, Pig.'
Pig and Runt were born on the same day, in the same hospital. Growing up in Cork, they've created a whole world of their own, and an unrivalled connection to each other. On the cusp of adulthood (their seventeenth birthday), they go out on the town and rip up the streets like they've never done before.
But adulthood poses its problems and possibilities, a future which breaks into their lives as feelings, aspirations and violence seep into the glittering underworld of their youth.
Disco Pigs is Enda Walsh's propulsive, explosive ode to youth, a two-hander like you've never seen before in a world you never thought you could imagine.
