With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, The Pillowman centers on a writer, Katurian, 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.
Originally produced on Broadway by the Booth Theatre in 2005, The Pillowman recieved the 2004-5 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best New Foreign Play and was a great success for its author, Mr. Martin McDonagh:
We at F.I.T.R. Productions believe, "the world of the play is the world of Katurian's writing".
Each of us sitting in the audience will feel they are a part of Katurian's "fairy tales". Even after coming out of the play, we will ask ourselves, was that a reality or yet another magnificient fairy tale created by Katurian?
The Barrow Mansion is the most admissible theater for our production of the play. Build in 1837, this greek revival building, at the very first step, takes you inside the fairy tales of Katurian's writing.
