Live Like Pigs archiveArden's controversial 'neighbours from hell' play. A group of wanderers, the Sawneys - descendants of the 'sturdy beggars' of the sixteenth century - are rehoused on a post-war council estate. Next-door, the Jacksons are less than impressed with their new neighbours. Live Like Pigs, originally produced at the Royal Court Theatre, brings to life the problems of the Welfare State with a 'racy, turbulent vitality' that recalls the with of the Elizabethans.
