"Comedies don't come any blacker than "The Pillowman," the spellbinding stunner of a play by Martin McDonag... [that] dazzles with a brightness now largely absent from Broadway." —New York Times
The Pillowman is the tale of Katurian, a fiction writer living in a police state who is interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories, and their similarities to a number of bizarre child murders occurring in his town.
The play received the 2004 Olivier Award for Best New Play, the 2004-2005 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best New Foreign Play, and two Tony Awards for production. It was nominated for the 2004 Evening Standard Award for Best New Play.
