Freddy, a 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.
