The Pillowman

July 24, 2020 - August 31, 2020

The Pillowman

The Pillowman is a spellbinding stunner of a play.” Ben Brantley, New York Times

Martin McDonagh’s Olivier Award-winning play The Pillowman makes its eagerly anticipated West End Premiere following its London debut at the National Theatre.

The first duty of a storyteller is to tell a story’. Or was it ‘The only duty of a storyteller is to tell a story.

In a totalitarian state a Writer is questioned by the authorities about a spate of murders that bear similarities to his short stories. Is this life imitating art or something more sinister? This black comedy widely regarded as one of the greatest plays of the past 25 years, examines the role of the artist in society and asks what price we pay for freedom of expression.
