The ghoulish pleasure of a well-told “scary story” is on full display in The Pillowman, Martin McDonagh’s shocking, disconcerting and memorable play. Set largely within an interrogation room in an unnamed totalitarian state, this black comedy follows fiction writer Katurian as he is questioned by police. The authorities suspect him of committing a series of murders that are strikingly similar to the gruesome crimes described in his short stories. Since he’s published only a single story, he is Suspect No. 1. This brilliant work about storytelling and its implications won McDonagh the 2004 Olivier Award for Best New Play and two Tony Awards. Now you can see this viciously funny (and seriously disturbing) tale at Denver’s Avenue Theater.
