The Play

A viciously witty tale about a writer in a totalitarian state who is interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a number of child-murders that are happening in his town. Be prepared to be enthralled and appalled by this play from one of the greatest contemporary story tellers around

This production includes strong language and scenes of a disturbing nature, including references to religious imagery. Not suitable for children under the age of 15 years.

 

Reviews

"Stomach-churning and wildly comic, The Pillowman is Martin McDonagh's most disturbing work to date ... There is no conclusion; there are lots of questions. This is a riveting evening." Susannah Clapp, Observer

"Anyone familiar with McDonagh's other award-winning plays will know not to treat this as a family outing, or as Granny's Christmas treat. If you feel strong, though, brace yourself for a play of extraordinary power and stunning theatrical bravura." Michael Coveney, Daily Mail
