The Pillowman @ DarkHorse Theater
Mar 2 @ 7:30 pm – 7:30 pm

ACT 1 is thrilled to invite you to Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman, our third show of the 2017/2018 season. There is a murderer of children lurking in the shadows. The two suspects are trying to convince two investigators that they have nothing to do with the crimes. There’s only one problem: Katurian has been writing about hurting and killing kids for years; his brother, Michal, is his biggest fan. Tupolski is a seasoned investigator while his partner, Ariel, is a newer, hungrier, investigator. Both work in a totalitarian police state system. They can’t be permitted to have a killer running loose. They can and will use any method possible to get a confession out of the brothers. The Pillowman is directed by Kurt Jarvis and features Diego Gomez, Taylor James Foster, Jason Lewis, and Chilton Stewart. Please note: Our Thursday shows are pay-what-you-can, and students (college and high school) get in free on Sundays. To take advantage of either special, please buy your tickets at the door, not in advance.
