The Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern is a nonprofit theatre company that has been bringing provocative work to Triangle audiences since 2005.  Our model is experimental but accessible, strange and dreamlike but familiar and immediate. Little Green Pig is dedicated to Enlightenment values: exploration of imagination, questioning traditional ideas and subjecting our work to the light of Reason.


Approaches include:

  • using humor as a tool in tragedy and vice versa
  • instilling all work with a palpable sense of drive
    and edge
  • nontraditional casting whether by gender or race and a subsequent exploration of both
  • deconstruction and "violation" of sacred texts while maintaining plot and character
  • breaking barriers in the depiction of the erotic and the violent
  • respect for the artist's time and talent
  • environmental staging in unexpected locations
  • using texts created or adapted by local playwrights juxtaposed with re-imagined classics
  • commitment to race and gender equity on all levels of participation
  • inclusion of disabled audience and artists


Little Green Pig's name is a reference to the play The Pillowman by Martin McDonagh. A pig in one of the play's stories chooses to remain green despite pressure from his pink contemporaries.
