The Pillowman
by Martin McDonagh
director: Geoffrey Wallace

Performances: April 12 - 27, 2013

Like a dining experience with Food Network's Anthony Bourdain or Andrew Zimmern, the unsettling and tightly crafted tale of The Pillowman is not for the faint of heart.  In an unnamed totalitarian state reminiscent of the Eastern Bloc, Katurian, a writer of grisly short sttories, has been arrested because his plots resemble recent tourture slayings of children.  Comedies don't come darker than this and audiences will be drawn in as the story twists and turns in McDonagh's well-spun script.  Nervious laughs elicited by The Pillowman will trail into gulps and gasps, as Katurian struggles to find what is real, faces his seemingly inevitable execution, and attempts to save his stories from destruction.
