Disco Pigs Revival Comes to Trafalgar Square with Evanna Lynch

Twenty years ago, Irish playwright Enda Walsh made an explosive debut in theater with Disco Pigs. To celebrate its monumental anniversary, the play is coming back to Trafalgar Studios 2 starring Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter) and Colin Campbell (Through a Glass Darkly). From July 12th to July 19th, fans and theatre goers can see this unique drama unfold at one of London's most iconic sites.

An official press release offers a splendid summary:
Born at the same time on the same day in the same hospital, Pig and Runt have been inseparable ever since. They speak in their own language, play by their own rules, and create a world for themselves in which boundaries blur between truth and illusion. Until, on their seventeenth birthday, they discover something more. As night falls, and the disco and drink take hold, they spiral violently out of control.

As we follow these two extraordinary teenagers through the streets of Cork City, drinking and dancing their way into the night, we witness with startling clarity how the nature of friendship can be changed forever. Endlessly playing with their own unique language, it's impossible not to be swept along by their sense of youthful abandon. Desperate for a world beyond their mundane, everyday existence - amidst the bright lights of the Palace Disco - they draw us into their orbit, refusing to let us go.
Courtesy of the official production, we have some marvelous stills of its leading stars during the rehearsal process. Photography credit goes to Alex Brenner. This is just a sneak peek of what you can experience seeing the play in person.  Visit the official website here for more information and how to buy tickets!
