Olivier Award for 'Best New Play' (2004)
Tony Award nominee for 'Best Play' (2005)
"a spellbinding stunner of a play...which dazzles with a brightness now largely absent from Broadway." - New York Times
First staged in London and New York three years ago, this critically acclaimed play makes an exciting debut in Singapore under the direction of Tracie Pang ('Best Director' nominee - Life! Theatre Awards 2007) and stars a compelling cast of actors - Michael Corbidge ('Best Actor' nominee - Life! Theatre Awards 2007), Adrian Pang ('Best Actor' - Life! Theatre Awards 2007) and Dan Jenkins ('Best Supporting Actor' - Life! Theatre Awards 2007).
The Pillowman, written by celebrated Irish dramatist Martin McDonagh, marries comedy and psychological drama. Set in an unnamed totalitarian state, Katurian - a fiction writer of gruesome fairy tales - has been dragged in by the police for interrogation about crimes committed in his community. They bear an uncanny resemblance to his books. As the police inspectors perform their good cop/bad cop routines to get to the bottom of the case, the audience will be led into the darkly funny and brutal world of the writer's, and perhaps even their own imaginations.
