HNC Acting presents Live Like Pigs by John Arden
Forced to move from their tramcar on a caravan site, the Sawneys, an unruly family of travelers, unwillingly arrive at their new home on a council estate. Living next door are the Jacksons, eager to establish themselves as middle class. When busybody Mrs. Jackson comes over to welcome the new arrivals to the neighborhood, she is driven off the property with a tirade of insults. But it’s the new friendships and attractions between the two families that ultimately prove more dangerous than this initial antagonism.
As more travelers descend on the Sawneys’ home and threats of eviction are made, the Jacksons become increasingly entangled with their new neighbors. John Arden’s domestic drama is both hilarious and moving in its portrayal of what happens when these two worlds collide.
Live Like Pigs was first presented by the English Stage Society at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in September 1958.
