An unreal Cork is the scenario for the darkly picaresque adventures of the two protagonists: born on the same day, Runt and Pig have grown up developing a close secret world of their own with its own language and, in their opinion, its own explosive rules.
The play centres around the complicated relationship between Lynch and Campbell, taking the viewer through a tumultuous period fraught with love, yearning, desire and infatuation. A powerful coming-of-age story encompasses two young people coming to terms with new & confusing emotions and the desire to escape a current mundane existence for change.
The premiere of Kevin Elyot’s final play, Twilight Song, in the 50th anniversary year of the decriminalisation of homosexuality, is a fitting tribute to a creator who writes honest and open queer theatre. And as such, it’s a bittersweet tale, effortlessly interweaving stories of past regrets and frustrated presents.
