Frank Pig Says Hello

by Pat Mc Cabe

Directed by Niall Cleary

Backstage Theatre & Backstage Youth Theatre join forces to celebrate their joint twentieth anniversary

Thursday 24th to Saturday 26th September  

“Frank Pig Says Hello” is the stage adaptation of Pat McCabe’s award-winning novel “The Butcher Boy”. This is a dark and poignant journey into the mind of Francie Brady, his hilariously funny and at times chilling interactions with the people around him, his yearning for approval from family and friends and the disastrous consequences of his eventual descent into madness. A cast of over twenty youth theatre members play a myriad of colourful characters in this tragic, yet energetic and highly entertaining piece of theatre .


This production is supported by Longford Arts Office, The Ireland Funds and Flynn & Lynch.
