The Pillowman

By Martin McDonagh | Recommended for ages 18+

Three children have gone missing.

Two are discovered murdered.

One is still unaccounted for…

An amateur writer is hauled into a police station for questioning. It appears that the stories they have written also concern the deaths of children and bear remarkable similarities to the events the police are investigating.

This Halloween, Different Animal Theatre return to the Lichfield Garrick Studio for their 12th production; a HORRIFIC, HARROWING and HILARIOUS production of Martin McDonagh’s (In Bruges, The Banshees of Inisherin) darkly humorous and twisted exploration of the power of storytelling.

The play is certainly not for the faint of heart. But if you are brave enough to face The Pillowman, you will be rewarded with an evening of shocks, laughter and jaw-dropping twists.

Content Warning: This performance contains strong language and adult themes throughout.

This amateur production of “The Pillowman” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk
