The Pillowman by Martin McDonagh was my last project as an undergraduate at Stockton University in the by gone days of February 2011.
Original Director’s notes click here
The Pillowman straddles the line between darkness and light, creativity and responsibility, innocence and guilt. In an unnamed totalitarian future, the writer Katurian is interrogated about the gruesome content of her short stories. These stories are revealed to be part of a larger world, a world that is a perverted mirror of our own institutions designed to comfort and protect us. The play asks the questions, ‘who is responsible and where does that responsibility end? Can we make the world we live in become a slightly brighter place or must we always descend further into despair? What does it take to find hope?’”
