Little Pig first published by Viking Penguin 1992. All rights reserved.

Little Pig jest historią "przyjaźni" między Mary, właścicielką fermy hodowlanej i małym prosiaczkiem. Całość akcji rozgrywa sią na farmie i w jej okolicach, gdzie żyją dzikie, ale wolne zwierzęta - lis, dziki kot i dzika kaczka. Nikt ich nie karmi, nie daje prezentów, nie pilnuje, ale za to mogą żyć jak chcą, decydować o własnym losie i boją się, że w każdy poniedziałek, kiedy przyjedzie ciężarówka mogą zostać zabrane do rzeźni.
Taki właśnie los, mimo przyjaźni z Mary, spotyka małą świnkę.

Treść sztuki może być interpretowana na różne sposoby, Może to być zwykła opowieść o losach świnki, można w niej też znaleźć wątek pozornej przyjaźni, któa kończy się, gdy w grę wchodzą pieniądze oraz problem przedmiotowego traktowania zwierząt.
Wrażliwy widz może zadać sobie pytanie: Kto tu właściwie jest&.?

With grateful thanks to Tadeusz Wolański & all the staff of Maybe Theatre Company for their help and support throughout the production period.

Akumal Ramachander is a fascinating mix of the eastern and the western, a true citizen of the world. Akumal is, in no particular order, a writer, a patron of the arts, a free spirit, a vegetarian, possibly the mosta optimistic man on the planet, a great friend of Poland, and the main reason why this production is taking place here in Gdańsk. Amazing!
