Martin McDonagh’s Tony and Olivier Award-winning play The Pillowman receives its West End premiere at the Duke of York’s Theatre in 2021.
Golden Globe winner Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Nocturnal Animals, Kick-Ass film series) and Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen, Killing Eve, Inside Number 9) star in this electrifying dark comedy, directed by Matthew Dunster (Hangmen).
Examining the role of the artist in society and the price of freedom of expression, The Pillowman is considered to be one of the greatest plays of the past 25 years.
Full dates for the 2021 production of The Pillowman at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London to be announced.
What’s the Story?
While living in a police state, a writer named Katurian is interrogated about a spate of murders that bear many similarities to his short stories. What has made Katurian write like he does? Is this simply life imitating art or something more sinister?
