With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, The Pillowman centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.
The Pillowman features Will Douglas, Bret Finholt, Keith Machekanyanga, and Darwin Ragsdale. The production team includes Natalie Novacek (direction), Po-Yang Sung (lighting design), Andie Day (costume design), Michael Krauss (set design), Jared LeClaire (media/sound design), and Sloan Buffum-Robbins (stage management).
