two act drama plays


In this two act drama, Freddy, a young teenage boy, struggles with the fact that his mother abandoned him a year ago and left him with her alcoholic and abusive partner, Vic. Vic, who has an older son, Bobby, makes no secret of the fact that Freddy’s mother abandoned him and that Freddy is entirely dependent on Vic for his living.

Freddy escapes into his imagination, in which he is a fierce character, Pigcat, who is bigger and stronger then Freddy will ever be. He is aided by the character Willyboar, who appears in his dreams when Freddy needs his mother the most.

But all is not as it seems with his mother’s disappearance as Freddy finds out as this drama comes to a climax in this chilling play.

‘Pigcat’ won the Holland New Voices Award at the Great Plains Theater Conference in 2010. It also won a Massachusetts Cultural Council grant in 2009. Read more about playwright Steven Bogart.
