The Pillowman (2020)

Feb 19th to 22nd 2020

Written by Martin McDonagh

Directed by Steve Brown

A viciously funny tale about a writer in a totalitarian state who is interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a number of child-murders that are happening in his town. Be prepared to be enthralled and appalled by this play from one of the greatest contemporary story tellers around.



"Stomach-churning and wildly comic, The Pillowman is Martin McDonagh's most disturbing work to date ... There is no conclusion; there are lots of questions. This is a riveting evening." Susannah Clapp, Observer

"Anyone familiar with McDonagh's other award-winning plays will know not to treat this as a family outing, or as Granny's Christmas treat. If you feel strong, though, brace yourself for a play of extraordinary power and stunning theatrical bravura." Michael Coveney, Daily Mail
