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.
The play is not suited to under 13s but otherwise suited to all ages.
Ticket price: €18 & €16 Concession.
