The Pillowman

Martin McDonagh

“A great man once said ‘The first duty of a storyteller is to tell a story…’ That’s what I do, tell stories”

In a totalitarian state, somewhere at sometime, writer Katurian is interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a number of child-murders that are happening in his town. Does art excuse the artisit from moral responsibility?
Martin McDonagh’s story about stories explores truth and lies, innocence and guilt, love and sacrifice, not to mention police brutality, innocence and the dangers of pushy parents.

Comedies do not come any darker than this.
