The Pillowman

Taking place in a totalitarian state, The Pillowman is the story of a writer and his brother who are accused of killing three children the same way three of Katurian’s characters are murdered in his dark and gruesome short stories. 

Totalitarianism is a political system with complex historical roots that is characterized for prohibiting political opposition, having absolute control over the media, and repressing people in the public and private lives. Enclosed in the interior of a space that depicts the historical context of an oppressive regime, audiences will become part of the interrogation Katurian is subjected to in this interpretation of The Pillowman.
