So, Empty Space Theatre is staging an absolutely unmissable new production that opens tonight. The play is called 'The Pillowman', and was written by Irish playwright (and filmmaker, for those who've seen In Bruges) Martin McDonagh. It's a spinechilling thriller that revolves around the police interrogation of a writer in connection with a spate of grisly child murders occurring in his town - murders that seem to be inspired by his dark, disturbing short stories. The play won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2004 and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play in 2005.
Junaid Malik, the director of 'ART', is directing Empty Space Theatre's production of 'The Pillowman'. The cast includes Uzair Khan, Osman Khalid Butt, Salman Akhter, Tughral Turab Ali and Natasha Ejaz.
The show runs from December 9 to 12 at Megazone F-9 Park, Islamabad. You can get tickets at Illusions, Shell Select F-7, and at the venue.
