A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE PLAY
Written in 2003 by Martin McDonagh, the enfant terrible of the British stage, “The Pillowman” is a riveting black comedy. In an unspecified totalitarian state, a writer and his mentally retarded brother are interrogated by two policemen when similarities come to light between the writer's dark stories and a series of real-life child murders. A labyrinth of narratives in which illusion and reality, past and present, intersect to form a complex, fascinating and terrifying tale about life, art, politics, society, violence and creativity.
“The Pillowman” won the Olivier Award for Play of the Year, the New York Drama Critics Award, and two Tonys. It has been translated into more than ten languages.
