Imagine if The Gilmore Girls made love to The Exorcist and then nine months later aborted the dead baby from Agnes of God then you would have: The Pig Farm.
This production starring Molly Bibeau, Tessa Nesbet, Morgan Smalley, Jeanne Carr, Sam Enos and Sean Spencer begins in the wee hours of the morning, where two young, devoted Christian women find their faith in the Lord tested as they attempt to dispose of the evidence of a recent overzealous display of faith by feeding it to pigs housed on a rural farm. Caught in the act, these young women find the evening becomes progressively more complex, morbid and dangerous as they encounter test after test of both super and natural origin. Their attempts to assuage their God, explain away their actions, and save their own lives and souls, turns into a rollicking debate on faith, the afterlife, and the existence of the devil herself.
