The Pillowman

The Pillowman

In 2007, an acclaimed production of this play was staged in Singapore, directed by Tracie Pang, and was described in a Flying Inkpot review as “absolutely unmissable”. A decade later, in response to overwhelming demand from our audiences, we are thrilled to announce the return of THE PILLOWMAN.

A writer of short stories is being questioned by the police regarding a series of child murders. What do his stories have to do with the gruesome deaths? Why is his brother, a gentle man-child with special needs, being locked up in the next room? Exactly who, or what, is “The Pillowman”? And “what’s in the box?”…

As the interrogation escalates, terrifying tales are told, buried bogeymen are resurrected, and it becomes impossible to distinguish fact from fiction. A nail-biting, nightmarish nursery story for grownups, THE PILLOWMAN will have you squirming on the edge of your seats even as you howl with laughter.

THE PILLOWMAN won the Olivier Award for Best New Play, and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best New Foreign Play.
