The Pillowman
Black Ice Theatre Co. presents

Winner of Two Tony Awards and Olivier Award for Best Play.

by Martin McDonagh
Acclaimed Author of In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths & Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Winner of two Tony Awards and the Olivier Award for Best Play, Martin McDonaghs The Pillowman opens in a prison cell where a young writer is being questioned about the childrens tales he has written, grim tales which have inspired copycat killings in the streets outside. Two interrogators tease out the resemblance between real and fictional worlds while probing the personal responsibility of the writer. Story piles upon story as the evening progresses, and the tension mounts when parallel interviews taking place in the adjoining cell with the writers sister are revealed.

The Pillowman engages the audience in both recreating the fantastical tales written for children and in defending the rights of the storyteller. The laughter provoked by McDonaghs gift for language and the tension provoked by his sublime flair for plot override the emotions of fear and pity but never let the black comedy settle into complacency. The storytelling skill in The Pillowman will keep an audience on the edge of their seat to the last line.

The Pillowman celebrates the raw, vital human instinct to invent fantasies, to lie for sport, to con for ones own end. It is as dark a comedy as it is possible to find.

"A complex tale about life and art, about fact and illusion, about politics, society, cruelty and creativity." Financial Times

"Energizing...a blindingly bright black comedy." NY Times

"THE PILLOWMAN [is] thoroughly startling and genuinely intimidating." Chicago Tribune
