The cast for Disco Pigs has just been announced! The reckless and adventurous duo Pig and Runt will be played by Charlie Murphy and Rory Fleck-Byrne.
Charlie Murphy won great critical acclaim for her recent performance as Eliza Doolittle in Pygmalion at the Abbey Theatre Dublin. She is currently performing in The Silver Tassie (Lincoln Centre, New York) and will soon appear in Big Maggie (Druid Theatre, Galway) both directed by Garry Hynes.
Rory Fleck-Byrne has appeared in Thea Sharrock’s production of Cause Célèbre (Old Vic) and Janet Suzman’s production of Antony and Cleopatra (Liverpool Playhouse).
And… did you know? Cillian Murphy originated the role of Pig in the original stage production of Enda Walsh’s play. He then went on to play the same role in the film version, alongside Elaine Cassidy. The film won multiple indie film awards.
