The Pillowman

The Pillowman is the kind of grim yet human work that could only come from the mind of Irish playwright and filmmaker Martin McDonagh, the man behind the darkly funny crime flicks In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths. In what's arguably his most famous play, McDonagh introduces us to Katurian, an author of short horror stories who gets arrested for a string of child murders that mirror these grisly tales. As his interrogation grows more intense, the script explores the power of fiction and the moral responsibility of the storyteller, demonstrating a wit and depth that garnered the 2004 Olivier Award for Best New Play and the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best New Foreign Play.

Brainpeople

Jose Rivera's Brainpeople is a feat of magical realism that transports audiences past the apocalypse and into the minds of the mad. On the anniversary of her parents' death, a disturbed heiress invites two strangers to her mansion for what could be a last supper, offering them a large sum of money if they can make it through dessert. The tale becomes surreal and macabre when we plunge into each character's consciousness and discover how truly lonely they are.

Luna Theater Company

Barrymore Award nominated and twice honored with "Play of the Year" by Philadelphia Weekly, Luna Theater Company earns its acclaim with gutsy, provocative productions that stick with audiences long after they've left the aisles. With a penchant for the tragicomic, Luna's works are often intense, always intelligent, and, like a never-ending game of pin the tail on the donkey, constantly exploring the darkness of the human psyche.
