Cadence Theatre Company in partnership with Virginia Repertory Theatre presents

The Pillowman
by Martin McDonagh
Direction by Steve Perigard
October 18-November 10, 2012
at Theatre Gym

With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, McDonagh’s dark comedy, The Pillowman centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the content of his short stories. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.

“A complex tale about life and art, about fact and illusion, about politics, society, cruelty and creativity.”
Financial Times
