Worcester State Theater Opens Dark Comedy “The Pillowman”

Wednesday, February 05, 2014


Worcester State University (WSU) Theatre continues its 2013-14 season of comedy with The Pillowman by Martin McDonagh. 

The show will be performed Feb. 20, 21, 22 at 8 p.m. and Feb. 23 at 2 p.m at the Fuller Theater at WSU, located on 486 Chandler Street in Worcester.

“For me, what brings The Pillowman alive is the constant struggle between what’s real and what’s imaginary,” says Director Sara Penniman, a visual and performing arts major at WSU. “This comes out in surprising ways from cartoons to puppets.”

Puppets, and Dark Jokes

In The Pillowman takes place against the backdrop of a nameless dystopia, where an author of grim fairy tales stands accused of murdering two children. By listening in on a good cop/bad cop interrogation, we hear the writer’s tales and how they intertwine with his life. Eventually, the morbid, madcap gags leads the audience towards the truth behind the crime.

Tickets sell for $14.00 general admission, $10.00 for seniors, and $7.00 for students. Discounted prices are also offered for WOO card holders. For tickets call 508-929-8843, email [email protected] or go to the Fuller Theater box office on campus. Tickets are also available at the door.
