Famous play of Enda Walsh finally in front of Belgrade audience
Disco Pigs is a play that revolves around the relationship of two teenagers born on the same day in the same hospital, who live next door to each other. The problems arise the moment they face new, hitherto unknown emotions that have been developing during their emotional and sexual maturation.
Although they may seem like villains at first glance, they are just victims, suffering from common teenage problems such as love, sexuality and life.
Disco Pigs is a play written by the Irish playwright Enda Walsh that was first performed in Ireland in 1996. It is interesting that the role of Pig was played by a then-anonymous actor Cillian Murphy who would later become a household name as part of Peaky Blinders. The play was a huge success and catapulted both Murphy (as an actor) and Walsh (as a playwright) among the elite of the European drama.
