A dark and bitterly funny comedy from Martin McDonagh performed by third year University of Derby Contemporary Theatre students

In a town where a writer’s dark stories have become real life, who is to blame? Katurian is interrogated by two twisted detectives in connection with a spate of copy-cat murders in his town, but what lengths will he go to in order to protect and preserve his stories?

The Pillowman originally premiered at the National Theatre, from Martin McDonagh, the writer and director of In Bruges and Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Mussouri.
