The Pillowman
by Martin McDonagh
directed by Jiri Zizka
October 6, 2006November 5, 2006

Brace yourself for the suspenseful, twisted comedy from the brilliantly talented Irish author of The Cripple of Inishmaan and The Lieutenant of Inishmore that The New York Times hailed as “the season’s most exciting and original new play”.  Winner of the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play and 2 Tony Awards, The Pillowman is the thrilling story of a writer who is being questioned on a series of murders echoing his unpublished stories.  Is he involved?  Has he been set up?  Reminiscent of both the Brothers Grimm’s tales and the Coen Brothers’ movies, The Pillowman is a mind-blowing tale sure to leave audiences talking long after they leave the theater.
