The Pillowman Opens at Redtwist Theatre in Chicago; Runs Through Dec. 27
A spellbinding drama with pitch dark humor about a writer accused of perpetrating the very acts depicted in his murderous stories. The Pillowman is a vicious whirlpool of dazzling storytelling at the hysterical edge of creepy and encroaching, despair and doom.
Rising-star director, Kimberly Senior, guides a stellar cast of company members and guest artists on a fearless journey thru the fascinating mind of the world's preeminent playwright, Martin McDonagh. Redtwist's leading young men, Associate Artistic Director, Andrew Jessop, and award-winning actor, Peter Oyloe, blaze a trail across lush landscapes of sound and fury as white-hot terror and pitch-black humor collide in a ball of flames amidst the fragility and hope of the human soul. When it comes to thriller, there's everything else, and then there's...The Pillowman.
Featuring: Andrew Jessop, Peter Oyloe, Tom Hickey, and Johnny Garcia, with Casey Cunningham, Joey Lesiak, Marissa Meo, and Jimmy Wilson-Schutter
