The Pillowman
By Martin McDonagh
Directed by Joy Zinoman
In the Metheny Theatre

"Brace yourself for a play of extraordinary power and stunning theatrical bravura." --The Daily Mail

The Pillowman tells the gripping tale of a writer whose dark fables seem to be coming to life. In an unnamed totalitarian state, police drag the author Katurian in for questioning; his ghoulish stories are the only clue in a series of recent murders. The Pillowman explores family secrets, censorship and the irrepressible power of storytelling.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Kirk Jackson
In the Mead Theatre

"Very funny. Very brilliant. Very chilling." --The New York Times

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead takes place behind the scenes of the great tragedy, as Hamletís two schoolmates find themselves the reluctant heroes of their own play, driven forward by the plot of Hamlet itself. Stoppard blends together dazzling, intricate wordplay and hilarious physical comedy in this true landmark of modern drama.
