By Martin McDonagh
Directed by Micheal Herman
The most recent offering from celebrated Irish playwright Martin McDonagh (The Beauty Queen of Leenane, The Lieutenant of Inishmore). A writer of dark, ghoulish fables gets dragged in for questioning when a series of grisly murders seem to be echoing his stories. The Pillowman is a darkly comic horror story about just how dangerous art can be.
