Ultimately, The Wedding Pig does make a valiant attempt to showcase a believable dysfunctional family falling apart in the face of tragedy, remaining staunchly grounded and occasionally fun despite its dark undertones. Chelsea Cheo knows how to write the unique, private language between close knit family members that seems completely alien to outsiders but perfectly familiar between blood relations, and one hopes to see this further developed in future works. For now, The Wedding Pig is enjoyable enough for a glimpse of what Cheo is capable of, and certainly, is a good start to a future in theatre.” – Bakchormeeboy
