THE PILLOWMAN

The Pillowman tells the story of a writer, Katurian, living under a totalitarian regime, who is arrested and questioned about the contents of his tales, which bear similarities to a series of child homicides in his hometown.

The title of the play comes from one of Katurian's stories about a nice character made of pillows who encourages children to commit suicide so they don't have to face terrible lives.
