Blue Hands by Larry Tremblay (Translated by Don Druick) Director: Del Surjik About the Play: Blue Hands is the tale of a boy and his mother, disturbingly illustrated through the fascinaing metaphor of a boy and his dog. Jeremy, in reconstructing his memory bit by bit, tumbles through a stream of consciousness polluted by wounds of a profoundly troubled childhood that marries the memory of his mother with his childhood pet.
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.
Starring: Kevin MacDonald and Jennifer Mawhinney
