Runtime: 1 Hour 35 Minutes


For anyone who's ever found themselves staring at their partner - wondering what in the world happened to that hot, handsome man they first started dating - playwright Chris Weikel is happy to explain in his own twisted bedtime story. Set in the wilds of New York's East Village, Pig Tale explores some of our worst dating fears - including committment, cuddling, and settling down together in a hilarious, sexy, urban faerie tale with a twist. Johnny and Dave have been dating casually until one night, upon returning from their favorite leather bar, Dave turns into a pig - literally! Will the morning after turn into happily ever after? Can Johnny's stoner friend Kyle or the mysterious Trannie from down the street help? Now challenged with having to care for Dave and finding a way to turn him back into a man, Johnny discovers that the true fairy tale transformation might need to be his own.
