About this show

Veering from the macabre to the hysterical, this viciously funny and disturbingly gruesome thriller centers on a writer in a totalitarian state who is brought in for questioning when the plot lines of his stories bear an uncanny similarity to real-life crimes that have been committed in the community. Intertwining family secrets with the irrepressible power of storytelling and imagination, Martin McDonagh's The Pillowman takes on some of today's most potent issues - from censorship and the power of the state, to freedom of speech and the rights of the individual. The Pillowman performs in the Dowling studio, and is directed by Wendy Knox.
