Tacoma Little Theatre Presents THE PILLOWMAN
Tacoma Little Theatre presents the dark comedy, The Pillowman, by Martin McDonagh, the Oscar winning author/director of Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri. This production is directed by Blake York.
Martin McDonagh echoes the works of Stoppard, Kafka, and The Brothers Grimm in this New York Drama Critics' Circle and Olivier Award winning script. The Pillowman is a viciously funny and seriously disturbing tale of Katurian, a fiction writer in an unnamed totalitarian state. Katurian and his brother Michael are brought in for questioning by two bulldog detectives, Tupolski and Ariel, when the content of his short stories - which involve disturbingly gruesome tales - begin to resemble real-life murders. The Pillowman weaves between reality and storytelling; and the result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.
Tacoma Little Theatre's production of The Pillowman features: Jacob Tice (Katurian), Andrew Fry (Tupolski), Christian Carvajal (Ariel), Sean Neely (Michal), Ellen Peters (Mother), Tim Takechi (Father), and Alexandria Bray (Girl).
The Pillowman will run Friday, April 20, through Sunday, May 6, 2018. Friday and Saturday showings are at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm. The Pillowman is recommended for ages 13 and up.
