The 7 Towers Theatre Company continues its second season with Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman, the story of a writer who is suspected of a series of murders that seem to be based on his dark fairy tales. As the play unfolds, the writer tells a number of his stories as he is interrogated by two increasingly brutal and violent police officers. The Pillowman, set in an unidentified totalitarian police state, asks difficult questions about freedom of speech and expression, and about the use of torture and force in police interrogations. Despite its violence, however, the play is darkly beautiful, ultimately arguing for the redemptive nature of the human spirit.
