WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In the American premiere of Pigtown, pork butcher Tommy Clocks takes the audience on a fast-moving, hilarious, and often poignant journey through his hometown of Limerick, Ireland. Born on January 1, 1900, and literally speaking from his coffin as the century ends, Tommy has seen it all: the "Emergency" of World War II, his city's notorious attitude towards the Jews, and the heartbreak of couples parted by emigration. A Limerick native, playwright Mike Finn fearlessly unfolds these stories to examine the impact of political conflict, war, emigration, prejudice, and poverty in one Irish town, never shying away from the seamier side of the city's history, while also sharing in its moments of triumph and uproarious humor.
