Description

Life In Arts Productions will present the company’s inaugural production, The Pillowman by Martin McDonagh, beginning February 10th at The Headwaters Theatre. Directed by Jamie M. Rea, The Pillowman is an urgent work of theatrical bravura – an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.

Winner of the 2004 Olivier Award for Best Play. With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, The Pillowman centers on a writer 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.

At its core, The Pillowman is about storytelling and the thrilling narrative potential of theater itself.
