From the team that brought you Equus. Prepare yourself for the theatre event of the year.
Katurian – a writer living in a totalitarian state – is hauled in for interrogation by the local police because his stories bear a suspicious resemblance to a series of brutal murders. As he tries to defend himself against these terrible accusations, the police repeatedly confront him with the contents of his stories – and reveal they’ve also arrested his disabled brother, as well – a childlike man Katurian has been caring for all his life.
Equal parts hilarious and harrowing, The Pillowman, by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh, is an intense, award-winning dark comedy unlike any other – and Post Productions has made it even more unique by incorporating short live-action films and animations to visualize Katurian’s stories, creating an immersive multimedia experience.
