Julie & Phillip as Derby and Joan

Derby & Joan

Two fading artistes in a hospice for Queers in reduced circumstances.Too long in the tooth and too short a fuse. How far do you have to go to get rid of a serious irritation? Both dressed to kill, riddled with acerbic wit and politically incorrect ravings. Which bitch will win the day?

Phillip Patston (Diversityworks) New Zealand's national treasure, acclaimed sit down comedian and raconteur, pairs up with Julie McNamara in this scratch performance of their dirty work.

'This little piggy went to market...'

Pig is a female child raised as a boy. Pig's warring Liverpool Irish family are haunted by the rigid teachings of the Catholic church. Disappointed with their lot and dislocated from their roots, the family implodes. Pig lures us into the chaos and confusion of an adolescence set against the brutality of the Mental Health System. An extraordinary tale, told through raw humour, compassion and bare-faced cheek.

Commissioned by Jackson's Lane and Oval House Theatre, as the flagship of the Xposure Festival of Disability Arts in November 2002. The production toured internationally until February 2008
