The Pillowman

  • 174 Polanenstraat Amsterdam, NH, 1013 WC Netherlands

The Pillowman is a search for truth. We meet Katurian, a writer of short stories who, together with his brother Michal, is being interrogated by the police. His “fairy stories”, more gruesome than The Grimm Brothers' tales, bear a resemblance to the series of child murders taking place in the town. In a story that twists and turns with dark humour we are asked what is real. Is the nightmarish fantasy he spins ...reality? Or just a figment of the writer’s imagination? Slowly the tale unravels, the consequences of which determine their fate.
