Leitrim and Fermanagh, Past and Present
At the Black Pig's Dyke is a story of murder, mystery, fairy tale and tragic love. The play is set on the border of Northern and Southern Ireland where family feuds are passed down through generations. The story is told using the pagan ritual of the mummers' play as a metaphor for Ireland at a time where people laughed at a wake and cried when a child was born.
Cross casting is necessary and some cast doubling is possible. See original production for details. Two of the original cast members also performed as musicians.
