THE LONG PIGS

Presented by CIRCFest22 Meanjin, Cluster Arts, and W3.

Horror meets hilarity! Join this underground clown cult for a spine-tingling original show that is hilariously dark and frighteningly funny.

Set in a rickety abattoir-shack, the Pigs are working hard on their latest obsession to rid the world of every last red-nose clown. However, all is not well. They are one nose short!

In a murky soup of distrust and suspicion, promises made are constantly broken and the gang ultimately turns on itself in a fatally funny and destructive climax.

Spine-tingling original theatre that is hilariously dark and frighteningly funny. Join this underground clown cult that audiences have been raving about.

★★★★★ Hi-Fi Way: The Pop Chronicles
“Captivated the audience, continuing to engage, surprise and shock until the grotesque conclusion.”

★★★★ Time Out Sydney
“A perfect use of movement-based theatre: visceral, visual and violent all at once.” 

★★★★ Herald Sun
“A dirty little masterpiece.”

Stage Whispers
“It’s not often in the theatre that you suddenly realise you are in the presence of creative genius.”

★★★★ Fest (Aus)
“Thematically meaty piece of physical theatre, where every laugh is undercut by a sense of morbid unease.”

★★★★ Sydney Morning Herald
“Unforgettable… deliciously hard to watch.”

★★★★ The Advertiser (Adelaide)
“A fascinating, slapstick, funny and violent little world.”

The Australian
“Strange and terrific indeed!”
