Archives - The Pillowman
by Martin McDonagh
Directed by Danny Swanson
Friday 19th – Saturday 27th November 2010 in the Auditorium
A viciously funny, seriously disturbing tale about a writer in a totalitarian state who is interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a number of child-murders that are happening in his town.
Tickets are on sale now for just £10.

It was a simply marvellous production. The actors were brilliant - I don't know how they remembered their parts so well. Congratulate them for me.
We saw it on Tuesday. Play - disturbing content but powerful, moving acting and sensitive direction - congratulations to the Barn for having the courage to present it.

...just such a classy and complete production - the Barn at its best!
...absolutely b****y amazing.
The production is fine it is the content that is SICK, SICK, SICK. I'd already given up on his Irish plays, I shall now avoid all his plays totally...
Many congratulations on a stunning play - a masterclass of acting and directing! Worth the 250 mile!
Enjoyed an evening of startling drama at the Barn - The Pillowman is thought-provoking and totally absorbing - brilliantly acted and directed by all concerned - well done guys!
Brilliant play, great direction, super acting and fantastic lego films- can't ask for more from a play really!
Go see Pillowman, Go see Pillowman, Go see Pillowman!
Pillowman is the most powerful production I have seen at the Barn - terrific ensemble acting, the use of video inspired.
Proper theatre; top notch acting and direction.
Just to say I think it's one of the best things the Barn has ever done. Congratulations. That scene just after the interval...wow. Totally moving.
Last night's performance of The Pillowman constituted one of the most memorable evenings I've spent at a theatre ANYWHERE! Well done to you all - it was one of those times when theatre was truly inspiring. Enjoy the plaudits that are bound to come.
