Reviews for Frank Pig Says Hello
Bob Kelly and John Rogers are an unnerving duo as the schizophrenic youth
- Irish Times review, Sarah Keating, September 2005

The two actors (Bob Kelly and John Rogers) use skilful energy and a series of well-devised, snapshot characterisations to sketch the boy’s murky, disturbing world.
- Irish Theatre Magazine review, Tanya Dean, September 2005

The performances of the two actors, between them playing a Cecil B De Mille cast, are as fine as I have seen on any stage anywhere.
- Pat McCabe, author and playwright
