THE PILLOWMAN Opens 9/26 at convergence-continuum
by BWW News Desk - Sep 09, 2014

convergence-continuum continues its 2014 Season with Martin McDonagh's viciously funny psychological thriller The Pillowman. The setting of this dark dramatic comedy is an unnamed totalitarian state where Katurian, a writer of short stories which often depict violence against children, has been arrested by two detectives, Ariel and Tupolski, because some of his stories resemble recent child murders. When he hears that his brother Michal has confessed to the murders and implicated Katurian, he resigns himself to his execution but attempts to save his stories from destruction. The play includes both narrations and reenactments of several of Katurian's stories, most notably the autobiographical 'The Writer and the Writer's Brother', which tells how Katurian developed his disturbed imagination by hearing the sounds of Michal being tortured by their parents.
