The Pillowman
By

Rating
New or Used: $15.00
A writer in a totalitarian state 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. "Sometimes you don't even know what you've been craving until the real thing comes along." ("New York Times"). "McDonagh is more than just a very clever theatrical stylist. His tricks and turns have a purpose. They are bridges over a deep pit of sympathy and sorrow, illuminated by a tragic vision of stunted and frustrated lives." (Fintan O'Toole, "Irish Times"). Martin McDonagh's searingly brilliant new play premieres at the National Theatre, London in November 2003.

Reviews

"Energizing . . . a blindingly bright black comedy." --Ben Brantley, The New York Times "A complex tale about life and art, about fact and illusion, about politics, society, cruelty and creativity." --Alastair Macaulay, Financial Times "Martin McDonagh, master of bad taste in black comedy's cause and persistent enfant terrible, leaps towards maturity in this dazzling, disquieting nightmare of a play which makes up its own Grimm fairy-tales." --Nicholas de Jongh, Evening Standard "A play of extraordinary power and stunning theatrical bravura." --Michael Coveney, Daily Mail
