1973 – “Live like Pigs” by John Arden

Posted on: June 12, 1973

The Sawney’s, the last members of the begging tramps of the Elizabethan Era, are evicted from their tram wagon and moved into a regular home. While adapting into the post-war society proves impossible for them, they are also forced to accept that they can’t stay together either as the family ties begin to fray. Disintegration ensues.
