Playwright Enda Walsh's high energy joy-ride Disco Pigs was originally staged in Cork, Ireland by Corcadorca Theatre. Two Irish kids, Pig and Runt are born at almost the same time in the same Dublin hospital - spiritual twins of different mothers - and grow up next door to each other. Insulated by their devotion to each other, the pair forge an almost telepathic bond while their intense relationship is expressed in a language that becomes aggressive, angular and deformed.

The show was directed by Del Surjik.
