By Caryl Churchill

Paperback £6.99£5.59

In 2014, Uganda passed an Anti-Homosexuality Act. This short, startling play looks at what lies behind it.

Caryl Churchill's Pigs and Dogs premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2016, in a production directed by Dominic Cooke.

Pigs and Dogs is also available in the collection Caryl Churchill Plays: Five.

'You western-backed goats,
They forced us into slavery and killed millions.
Now they want us to accept the sinfulness of homos.
It shall not work.'
