Following a critically acclaimed run at Salford's Lowry Theatre, the darkly funny and physical The Boy Who Kicked Pigs will splash bloodily onto the stage at Jacksons Lane for two weeks in March.
Based on the macabre children's book by star of Dr Who, Tom Baker, The Boy Who Kicked Pigs is a fast-paced and wildly entertaining contemporary morality tale. Featuring murderous teens, shark mutilation, a nasty incident with weed-killer cornflakes and a potential apocalypse, this is an unmissable debut for Kill the Beast, who also adapted the original novel.
Recently honoured as one of 2012's theatre highlights by The Public Reviews, The Boy Who Kicked Pigs tells the tale of evil thirteen year old Robert Caligari; a boy who wants to take over the world, cause deadly mayhem and, for reasons of his own, kick pigs.
Directed by Kill the Beast Artistic Director, Clem Garritty with stunning visuals and design by Bryan Woltjen, costumes by Nina Scott and lighting by Eliiot Griggs, The Boy Who Kicked Pigs is a twisted and deliciously gruesome tale, at Jacksons Lane in Highgate for two weeks only.
