Thirteen-year-old Robert Caligari has a rather nasty habit of kicking pigs. But today, Robert is going to get his comeuppance. Today is the day that Robert Caligari is going to die.
Following a critically acclaimed run at Salford’s Lowry Theatre, the darkly funny and physical The Boy Who Kicked Pigs will splash bloodily onto the stage at Jacksons Lane for two weeks in March.
Based on the macabre children’s book by star of Doctor Who, Tom Baker, The Boy Who Kicked Pigs is a fast-paced and wildly entertaining contemporary morality tale. Featuring murderous teens, shark mutilation, a nasty incident with weed-killer cornflakes and a potential apocalypse, this is an unmissable debut for Kill the Beast, who also adapted the original novel.
