Pig Farm to receive UK premiere at the St James Theatre

It has been announced that Pig Farm will receive its UK premiere at the St James Theatre later this year.

Written by Tony Award winner Greg Kotis, the production opens on 28th October (previews from 21st October) and runs until 21st November 2015. 

Pig Farm will be directed by Katharine Farmer with the full creative team and cast to be announced. 

Kotis, whose writing credits also include Urinetown The Musical, said: "I am thrilled beyond measure to be returning to London and the St James Theatre with Pig Farm. Every American playwright dreams of having his or her work brought to life on a London stage, and I feel very lucky indeed that this dream is coming true once again."

Life on the farm is hard. Under a pot-bellied sky, Tom and Tina, with just the help of hired hand Tim, are struggling for survival and it’s taking its toll. Troubles simmer dangerously as they search for solace, then gun-toting Teddy arrives and things go from bad to worse. Pig Farm is a hilarious tale of regular folk, human sludgery and the American dream dragged through the mud.
