Florissant Valley Presents “The Pillowman”

September 15, 2011

“The Pillowman,” by Martin McDonagh, takes the stage at St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley’s Terry M. Fischer Theatre at 8 p.m. Sept. 30, Oct. 1, 7 and 8, and at 2 p.m. Oct. 2. The campus is located at 3400 Pershall Road in Ferguson.

With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, “The Pillowman” centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.

“The Pillowman” is produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

Due to strong language and adult themes, only patrons over the age of 16 will be admitted. Admission is free and all performances are open to the public. The Oct. 7 performance will be sign interpreted.
