Frank Pig Says ~ An Táin Arts Centre Fri 9th Nov | 8pm
8pm | Friday 9th November
Desperately funny and yet deeply tragic, Frank Pig Says Hello is one of the great classics of modern Irish theatre. It tells the story of Francie Brady growing up in a small Irish town in the 1960s and his descent towards a brutal act that shocks his community.
Based on Pat McCabe’s Booker-winning novel “The Butcher Boy”, the play distils Francie’s infamous narrative into a riveting evening of pure theatre.
Featuring mesmerising performances by two actors, Darragh Byrne and John Ruddy, Frank Pig is regarded as one of the most vivid, hilarious and heart-breaking evocations ever seen on a stage of an Irish childhood and adolescence gone wrong. From the opening live trumpet notes over an image of a happy, comical boy acting the piglet, to the breath-taking depiction of a dark deed, this is theatre at its most entertaining and gripping best.
Tickets €18 / €16
