THE PILLOWMAN by Martin McDonagh

Directed by Deb Failla

A writer of gruesome stories portraying bizarre violence against children is arrested and interrogated because his work mirrors recent child murders. What responsibility does the writer hold? Traveling the blurred lines between life and art, the accused tries to save his brother, himself, and his life’s work from destruction. The Pillowman explores family secrets, censorship and the irrepressible power of storytelling. The script is written in a Hitchcock meets Tarantino style that will keep audiences riveted until the final line is delivered.

***This thoughtful, intelligent but disturbing and dark comedic play contains mature language, adult themes and subject matter. Not suitable for all audiences or children.***

Performances March 14th – April 5th, 2014
