About This Show

In an unidentified totalitarian state, Katurian, a butcher by day and a writer of haunting fairy tales by night, faces interrogators from the local police force. As Katurian learns, his stories, in which characters meet grisly and macabre fates, have inspired a string of copycat crimes. As the police resort to increasingly absurd and hilariously unconventional methods to crack the case, Katurian’s stories come to life, blurring the line between fact and fiction, truth and storytelling. In a production directed by Rick Lombardo, The Pillowman explores the dark corners of the human imagination and the delicate balance between the freedoms of the individual and the security of the state.

Subscribers can save up to 40% off regular prices, and prices for the five-play season range from $146 to $220.
