The Pillowman

Tickets for The Pillowman



Following a sell-out run at the London National theatre, Martin McDonagh’s long-awaited, Olivier award-winning play is coming to the West End for a limited time only! Starring the highly acclaimed Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy, Nocturnal Animals) alongside Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen, Inside No. 9), the Pillowman boasts an incredible, star-studded cast. 

A modern revival of Irish playwright Martin McDonagh’s obscenely funny black comedy, the Pillowman enjoyed its first reading in London, 1995 and then officially premiered in 2003. Its awards include the 2004 Olivier Award for Best New Play, two Tony awards and several other awards and nominations. With tickets expected to be in high demand for this masterpiece, we recommend that you book them in advance! 

Recommended age: 14+

Whilst living in a totalitarian police state, fiction writer Katurian is working on a series of short stories about gruesome child murders. Yet the writer finds himself subject to interrogation by the authorities as several murder mimic ideas from his work. The police are also interested in his brother, Michel, who is described by Katurain in his stories as “slow to catch on”...

A profound exploration into the role of the artist in society, the Pillowman is a dark but simultaneously hilarious drama which has captivated audiences with its compelling story-line.
