Frank Pig Says Hello / The Leaves of Heaven
Dublin Theatre Festival 2017 / Produced by Co-Motion. Directed by Joe O’Byrne
Twenty-five years after it was first presented as part of Dublin Theatre Festival 1992, Frank Pig Says Hello, the stage version of Pat McCabe's novel The Butcher Boy, returns alongside McCabe's follow up show, The Leaves of Heaven, in a unique double-bill.
Frank Pig Says Hello is a desperately funny and tragic depiction of the life of Francie Brady growing up in a small Irish town in the 1960s and his descent towards the brutal act that shocked the community. The Leaves of Heaven sees Francie many years later as he lives out his days in Dundrum Mental Hospital searching for forgiveness.
