How far would you go for love? PIG follows three gay couples as they stretch the boundaries of their relationships in the quest for deeper levels of intimacy. Through acts of emotional domination, sexual submission, compulsion, and violence, these men delve into the space where the lines between shame, hatred, love, and obsession cease to exist. A provocative account of contemporary sexuality told by UK writer Tim Luscombe.

In the tradition of “in-yer-face theatre” (pioneered by writers such as Sarah Kane and Tracy Letts), Luscombe offers a raw and confrontational take on sex and love, in a world where sexual liberation and new technologies allow us to explore the furthest limits of our carnal desires. (
