Hull Truck Theatre, 9-11 July 2015

Police. Pigs. Fuzz. Rozzers.
Guardians. Heroes. Puppets.
Part of Lyn Gardner's Guardian Theatre Picks of the Week
Meet Ted, Coral, and Gaz, two cops and a robber. Ted wants to be a hero. Coral will do anything for a promotion. Gaz’s best mate is a pigeon, he never stood a chance
Kinetic and full of energy... the result is an ever shifting feast for the eyes that never bores"
In response to anonymous interviews with serving officers and those affected by the force, Silent Uproar with playwright Alex Oates bring a dark comedy that looks at how the world either side of the thin blue line isn’t black and white, just many shades of grey. Hours of e-forms, stolen gnomes, fractured skulls: another day in the war on crime gone mad.
"I can't wait to see what's next in store for this emerging company"
Pig was made with the support of Arts Council England, Hull UK City of Culture 2017, Hull City Council, New Diorama Emerging Company Fund, Hull Trains, American Chip Spice, and our amazing Kickstarter supporters.
