The Pillowman

by Martin McDonagh
directed by Jenn BeVard

This new award-winning dark comedy centers on a writer, his stories, and the disturbed inspirations lurking within them. When arrested and questioned for his violent imaginings by agents of a totalitarian state, Katurian’s resolve is strengthened in a Kafkaesque quest for justice. In tackling this disquieting tale, director BeVard seeks the truth behind motive and the legacy of the written word.

For mature audiences.
