Philadelphia City Paper writes, “I remember the ‘wow’ of seeing Pig Iron’s first show at Swarthmore College years ago, and felt it again at Hackles, produced by their students.” (Groundswell Creator/Performer/Artistic Director Scott Sheppard, above, HC ’06, just finished his first year studying with with the Pig Iron School for Advanced Performance Training).
