Precisely Peter Productions Announces THE PITCHFORK DISNEY
The Pitchfork Disney is the award-winning playwright, Philip Ridley's first play and has become a cult-classic which has been staged all over the world. It's a raw, provocative vision of fear, loneliness, repressed sexuality and the human fascination with violence and horror.
Philip Ridley is considered responsible for starting, what became known as the, in-yer-face theatre movement of the 1990's. Today, his early plays are considered to be more like prophecies and it is often commented that society has finally caught up with his stories/writing. In addition to writing plays, Philip Ridley is also an award winning screenwriter, children's author and artist.
