Pig Girl: On race, voice, respect and artistic freedom
Pig Girl , first produced in November and then published in November ,  is a play by Colleen Murphy that draws upon the events of the Pickton case  surrounding the murders of Indigenous women by Port Coquitlam pig farmer Robert Pickton. The play tells the stories of the fictionalized characters Dying Girl, Killer, Sister, and Police Officer in order to illuminate the Canadian issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women. As opposed to narratives that concentrate on the victimization of murdered Indigenous women, Murphy aimed to portray their voices, heroism, and resistance, along with their societal marginalization. The play's title, Pig Girl , is described by the author as ironic and provocative, as the murdered women were treated like animals.
Loosely inspired by the case of British Columbia serial killer Robert Pickton , the play tells two parallel stories. In real time, we watch her captor rape her, abuse her, taunt her, and, eventually, hang her by a meat hook, then strangle her with his legs. She screams in pain. She scream for help. She screams for her mother, her sister, her dog.
