More details about The Pillowman below.

In an unnamed totalitarian state, Katurian K. Katurian – a writer of short stories and twisted fairy tales, has been arrested. Why? What is he actually charged with? Also in custody is his younger brain-damaged brother. This is a darkly comic thriller like no other. It is a fascinating play that celebrates the power of writers – not just as storytellers but as people who encourage us to think. Katurian’s stories are, the police claim, ‘a puzzle without a solution’. The stories stimulate our curiosity, our dread and, most importantly, our imaginations. Brutal, dark, twisty and unforgettable.

The cast relies on 4 strong male characters. In addition there are 2 female and 2 male roles.
