KYT: PIG HOUSE @ BIG HOUSE
“KYT’s raw talent and limitless energy make a brand new show to delight in the fantastic surrounds of the Farmyard.”
– Festival Director.
GENERATOR (a Kildare Youth Theatre project) has created a series of performances exploring ugliness and utility in the lives of young people living in Kildare. Inspired by the setting – a restored piggery with individual stone pig-sties – the company perform 6 short pieces in 3 of the sties for limited audience numbers.
Find your way to the Piggery in the home farm and meet 2 vegans planning an alternative debs night; a group of ghost hunters seeking the truth about Castletown’s famous ghost story; a drug deal that goes down in an unexpected way; a dance piece about loss; and 3 girls who meet at the site where their friend died a year earlier.
‘Pig House’ is part of a series of site-specific work by this award-winning young company of teenagers. They have recently staged several plays in hotel bedrooms in Newbridge (‘Do Not Disturb’), an ancient tomb in Greece (‘Six Pomegranate Seeds’), and in a gun-club tunnel in Norway (‘Re:Location’). Written by the company and Peter Hussey, and directed by Peter Hussey.
Farmyard @ 1.30 & 4.30 Every Day (Meet at the Archway).
