The Irish premiere of The Pillowman by Martin McDonagh by Decadent Theatre Company opens at Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre on Tuesday 24 January and runs until Sunday 5 February. Tickets are on sale now.
“Comedies don’t come any blacker than The Pillowman. A spellbinding stunner of a play,”New York Times.
“McDonagh’s tricks and turns have a purpose – they are bridges over a deep pit of sympathy and sorrow, illuminated by a tragic vision of stunted and frustrated lives.”Fintan O’Toole, Irish Times.
Be warned! “The laughs elicited by The Pillowman are the kind that trail into gulps and gasps, appropriate to a show that concerns a man under suspicion of torturing and killing children with no mercy and lots of imagination”. New York Times
