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.
