“I was absolutely gripped by the script … it is like lemon juice in cuts, but in an addictive way” – Kate Copstick
Three brothers, triplets, live in one room in fear of a strange presence next door. Each night without fail they watch and act out the same VHS tape saved from a time before: a Spanish cartoon titled ‘Los Tres Cerditos’ (Three Little Pigs).
They’ve been isolated from the rest of the world for multiple years from a young age. In an attempt to fill the cavities formed from an existence separated from normal society, their language has evolved into a chaotic, childlike amalgamation of Spanish and English. They govern their own surreal microcosm of existence following their own spiritual routines, and playing their own daily roles to carry on the illusion.
The play casts an eye over the effects of isolation, childhood abuse, and the power dynamics that accompany isolation.
It was first performed at Theatro Technis in London, August 2021
