Pig Farm is a satire that reunites Tony Award-winning Urinetown co-writer Kotis with Tony Award-winner Rando, who directed that musical. "Under a pot-bellied sky on a struggling pig farm somewhere in America, Tom (John Ellison Conlee), Tina (Katie Finneran) and their hired hand Tim (Logan Marshall-Green)
fight to hold onto everything they have – namely, a herd of fifteen
thousand restless pigs. Dumping sludge into the river has driven Tom to
drink, and Tim seems to have caught Tina's eye, but when Teddy (Denis
O'Hare), an officer of the Environmental Protection Agency arrives to
inspect the operation, life on the farm explodes, implodes, then
explodes again. Not literally, of course, but…you get the idea," state press notes.
