Product description

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.

Review quote

PRAISE FOR MARTIN MCDONAGH AND THE PILLOWMAN: "McDonagh is destined to be one of the theatrical luminaries of the 21st century." -"-The New Republic" "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"
