§ Dramatis Personae Adam (m), 25, a young man having a quarter-life crisis; First Pig (f), 23, one of a Greek-style chorus of pink pigs; Second Pig (f), 23, one of a Greek-style chorus of pink pigs; Third Pig (f), 23, one of a Greek-style chorus of pink pigs; Brown Pig (f extra appearing for approximately 1 minute), 23, a brown pig.

§ Synopsis “Adam, twenty-five years old, has no idea what he wants of life. He is specifically confused about love. He soliloquizes in an introspection highlighted by a Greek chorus of pink pigs representing his subconscious thoughts.

§ Comment “What does it mean that Adam collects pink pigs? • Chorus: The Pig chorus should be rhythmic and tonal, unless otherwise noted. Multiples of the three Pigs could be added if wanted. • The Pigs do not wear masks or noses. They should all be uniform. Ideally, they would wear pink tights, long-sleeved pink leotards, possibly skirts. They should have their hair in pigtails. Pink socks or ballet slippers, and pink gloves. They should have curly tails. All action occurs in a bare, blank stage. A few small pieces of pink furniture are placed around the stage: a chair, a few boxes or stools, a podium. • Cindy M. Kelly, twenty-six, lives in Amsterdam, Ohio [U.S.A.], where she and her mother run a crafts and art gallery, and a candle company. She attended Davis and Elkins College, doing undergraduate work in theatre, and serves currently as assistant Thespian sponsor at Edison High School, Richmond, Ohio [U.S.A.], where she graduated in 1996.”

§ Themes collection, failure, friendship, frustrations, Greek chorus, life, love, pig, purpose, quarter-life crisis, relationship, self-image, soliloquy, subconscious, success, women.
