In a power-hungry human world, can they love? Can they fight? Can they become part of us?
Disruptive and disorientating, this tongue-in-cheek sci-fi tale concocts a dystopian future through a punchy cocktail of stripper pole, physicality, hyper visuals, buttock-clenching tension, a fair bit of smirking, maybe some touching – and, of course, some sexy Pigs.
Optional narratives are delivered through headsets, specially commissioned from comedy writers Richard Herring and David Quantick.
