The Pillowman
Playlovers are proud to present the darkest comedy of all time, award winning ‘The Pillowman’ by Martin McDonagh. Directed by the well known theatre talent Matt Longman.Martin McDonagh has been called “one of the theatrical luminaries of the 21st century” (The New Republic). While still in his twenties, the Anglo-Irish playwright filled houses in New York and London, was showered with the theater world’s most prestigious accolades, and electrified audiences with his cunningly crafted and outrageous tragicomedies. His latest drama, The Pillowman, continues this trajectory, winning the 2004 Olivier Award for Best Play. With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, The Pillowman centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura-an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art that is sure to “be staged for generations to come.

”“Energizing…A blindingly bright black comedy… [what makes] the unsettling and exhilarating new play from Mr. McDonagh…so gripping as theater is how narrative art becomes the play’s and the characters very life blood.”-Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“A complex tale about life and art, about fact and illusion, about politics, society, cruelty and creativity.”-Alastair Macauley, Financial Times“McDonagh’s least forgiving, bravest play.”-Matt Wolf, Variety
