Ken Patterson, 4 Corners said: “The 30 minute show with songs, colourful set and four actors explores what the pigs did when they were thrown together with only the brick house to live in. It’s cold and damp and the wolf keeps knocking at the door. In the end they insulate the house, block the draughts and organise appropriate fuel for themselves. The live show on tour also features a workshop opportunity to talk to the children afterwards to further explore the themes of coping with fuel poverty, materials, counting money and entitlement to a warm home”.
Hey Piggy Piggy! is a collaboration between 4 Corners Music Network and Théâtre Sans Frontières .With script and songs by John Cobb, Sarah Kemp, Ken Patterson and Richard Scott.
