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. Enda Walsh’s credits include Once recently in the West End and Chatroom, Misterman and Ballyturk at the National Theatre. His screen credits include Hunger, directed by Steve McQueen.
