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. Described as “one of the saddest and funniest tales I have seen” The Irish Times; “a masterpiece” The Evening Herald and “an extraordinary piece of theatre” The Sunday Independent, the original production coincided with McCabe’s Booker-winning novel of the same story entitled “The Butcher Boy”. The play distils Francie’s infamous narrative into a riveting evening of pure, concentrated theatre.
Written by Pat McCabe and Performed by Darragh Byrne and John Ruddy.
