WINNER OF 2 TONY AWARDS AND THE OLIVIER AND CRITICS' CIRCLE AWARDS FOR BEST NEW PLAY
"The first duty of a storyteller is to tell a story..."
DIRECTED BY ANDREW FLYNN
”A hymn to word power... It is an unquestionably superlative production of a marvellous, thought-provoking play, to the point of being pretty well faultless."
"A clear sighted and brilliantly imaginative production. Decadent’s production makes it something more enjoyable, probing, diaphanous and unsettling. Anyone with a higher threshold for McDonagh should add another star to the rating above. Perhaps even two."
“It constantly undermines and disestablishes its political intent, with complex tonal shifts and ambiguities. It dares you to engage with its ideas, whilst defiantly mocking you for doing so. But don’t be fooled; it takes itself very seriously indeed, and this is a welcome opportunity to see the play in its first Irish production by Decadent Theatre Company.”
“ The show has arrived in some style. This shifting, sinewy plotting, wedded to McDonagh’s provocative comedy and wordplay, provides a delicious treat."
“Terrific... This is an unsettling, must-see production."
" In our post-Charlie Hebdo world, we need The Pillowman's irreverence more than ever."
"Andrew Flynn has done an Oscar worthy job... Remarkable..."
"The premiere of The Pillowman is well worth the wait."
