The Pillowman Photos

'The father, as we have established, treats the little girl badly, and one day the girl gets some apples and carves some little men out of these apples, all little fingers, little eyes, little toes, and she gives them to her father but she says to him they're not to be eaten, they're to be kept as a memento of when his only little daughter was young, and naturally the pig of a father swallows a bunch of these applemen whole, just to spite her, and they have razor blades in them, and he dies in agony.' The Pillowman is playwright Martin McDonagh's exhilarating and viciously funny new comedy-drama about a fiction writer in a totalitarian state who is interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories, and their [IMG:L]similarities to a number of bizarre incidents occuring in his town. London's Herald says that the show is, "Brothers Grimm rehashed by Quentin Tarantino." After premiering at London's National Theatre in November 2003, the play received the 2004 Olivier Award and an Evening Standard Award nomination for Best New Play.
