The Pillowman

While still in his twenties, the Anglo-Irish playwright Martin McDonagh has filled houses in New York and London, been showered with the theatre world's most prestigious accolades, and electrified audiences with his cunningly crafted and outrageous tragicomedies. With echoes of Stoppard and Kafka, his latest drama, The Pillowman, is the viciously funny and seriously disturbing tale of a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a number of child-murders occurring in his town.

This Play is extremely well written and it has a lot of dark comedy in it. It is definetly a play you will not want to put down.

This show is an amazing piece. Not only is the writing stimulating and leaves you in horror, but to work on and see a show like this sends you through an emotional rollercoaster that leaves you breathless. The only bad things I can say about this piece is that sometimes full conclusions are not drawn from the stories told by Katurian. But it will leave the reader pondering the message of the play and will spark brillant debate among friends.
