"Based on a true story, A Place With the Pigs is a poignant and sometimes farcical tale about a Russian soldier who deserted his post during WWII and spent the next 41 years hiding in his pigsty. The plays begins with Pavel Ivanovitch preparing to rejoin the world by throwing himself at the mercy of his countrymen".

There is a post-show talk on 22 Nov 2023.

A Place with the Pigs in Wisconsin, USA

The College of Arts and Communication at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater present A Place with the Pigs from 5-9 Oct 2021.  It is at the Barnett Theatre in the Greenhill Center of the Arts.

"Based on an absurd but true story and directed by Bruce Cohen, this poignant and sometimes hilarious tale is about a Russian soldier who deserted during World War II and spent ten years hiding in his pigsty. As the play begins, Pavel Ivanovitch is preparing to rejoin the world and throw himself on the mercy of his countrymen… Will Pavel Ivanovitch ever be able to leave the pigsty, or is it his only safe haven?".
