The Pillowman
by Martin McDonagh
October-November 2012 | Theatre Gym

presented by Cadence Theatre Company in partnership with Virginia Repertory Theatre

2013 RTCC Award Nominations
Best Supporting Actor in a Play – David Janeski
Best Ensemble

“Directed by Steve Perigard, this is some of the most superb acting I have seen. Conyers and Janeski shine onstage and every moment and their interaction is genuine and captivating. I could not take my eyes off of either of them.” Jen Maciulewicz,

“In the small role as the title figure in Katurian’s story, ‘The Little Jesus,’ a young actor Sophie Shannon wows. In the brief space of less than 10 minutes, she is fierce, graceful and heartbreaking.” Liz Jewett,

“It’s an incredibly riveting and soul wringing experience… Put this down as a must see. A definite must see for any lover of true drama.” John Porter, NPR – WCVE

“I applaud Cadence for bringing this relevant contemporary work to Richmond. I challenge theatre goers to consider attending before the production closes on November 10. Surprisingly, I found the production clarifying as I grapple with how to handle my vote in a few days. But isn’t that the gift of art – a way to look at things sideways?” Katie Mattes, patron from Midlothian, VA
