In addition to touring the U.S. this summer, PigPen spent two weeks in residence at the Williamstown Theatre Festival workshopping the new Chicago production of their Off-Broadway work The Old Man and The Old Moon. The show, which played more than 100 performances in NYC, made its Chicago debut Sept. 3 in a new production at Writers' Theatre. Performances continue through Nov. 10.
The seven members of PigPen began creating their brand of music, film and theatre as students at Carnegie Mellon University in 2008. They went on to become the first group to win top honors at the New York International Fringe Festival two years in a row (2010 and 2011), and their first commercial Off-Broadway production The Old Man and The Old Moon ran September 2012–January 2013 at The Gym at Judson.
