Tacoma Little Theatre is honored to be representing the Puget Sound at the Washington State Community Theatre Association (WSCTA) Kaleidoscope festival with their performance of last season’s, The Pillowman, written by Martin McDonagh, and directed by Blake R. York.
Martin McDonagh echoes the works of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm in this New York Drama Critics' Circle and Olivier Award winning script. The Pillowman is a viciously funny and seriously disturbing tale of Katurian, a fiction writer in an unnamed totalitarian state. Katurian and his brother Michael are brought in for questioning by two bulldog detectives, Tupolski and Ariel, when the content of his short stories - which involve disturbingly gruesome tales - begin to resemble real-life murders. The Pillowman weaves between reality and storytelling; and the result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.
Tacoma Little Theatre’s festival production of The Pillowman features: Jacob Tice (Katurian), Andrew Fry (Tupolski), Christian Carvajal (Ariel), and Sean Neely (Michal).
The Pillowman will present one special public performance prior to the festival, on Sunday, February 24th at 7:30pm.
Tickets are $10.00 per seat for these special performances and they will be held at Tacoma Little Theatre. Tickets may be purchased by clicking here, or by calling our Box Office at (253) 272-2281.
