In a rickety abattoir-shack, location unknown, the Pigs are working hard on their latest obsession, rid the world of every last red-nose clown.
They’re in a pig-eat-pig world where exclusion, derision and brutality get you places. However, all is not well. They are one nose short!
In a murky soup of distrust and suspicion, promises made are constantly broken and the gang ultimately turns on itself in a fatally funny and destructive climax.
The Long Pigs is spine-tingling original theatre that is hilariously dark and frighteningly funny. Join the underground clown cult that audiences have been raving about.
