In Yer Space is a Blackpool theatre company consisting of past and present students of Arnold School. The students will perform Enda O'Brien's thought-provoking tale Disco Pigs in the Lawrence House Studio at the Grand Theatre from Wednesday 12th September to Friday 14th September.

Pig and Runt are two teenagers born on the same day, inseparable from birth, twins except by bloodline, who inhabit their own private world. But, days before their 17th birthday, their perfectly balanced world begins to shift. Pig's sexual awakening and increasing jealousy threatens to destroy their private universe. The inseparable are about to separate, and the one who survives will be the one who breaks free.

Disco Pigs stars Grant Armstrong as Pig and Nicola Thorp as Runt and was first performed as part of the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Grant Armstrong last appeared at the Lawrence House Studio in Debbie Isitt's The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband. He is currently a student at the University of Edinburgh but is swapping the academic life for drama school training in the autumn to train as an actor. He is the brother of Robin Hood star, Jonas Armstrong, also a former student of Arnold School.

Nicola Thorp recently appeared in Hannah and Hanna and Be My Baby at the Lawrence House Studio and is currently completing 'A' levels before enrolling in Drama School in the autumn.

This play contains strong language and scenes of a sexual nature.

All seats £7.50 for Disco Pigs in the Lawrence House Studio at the Grand Theatre, Blackpool from Wednesday 12th September to Friday 14th September at 8pm. -- www.blackpoolgrand.co.uk
