Patrick McCoy's Reviews > The Pillowman
I think Martin McDonagh is probably the most interesting playwright in contemporary theater. He is now most primarily known for his excellent film In Bruges. I previously read The Beauty Queen of Leenane And Other Plays. The Pillowman gained a lot of attention in 2005 when it opened on Broadway. I finally got a copy of it and read it. I think two defining traits of McDonagh are his excellent dialogue and violence. It is a black comedy, like much of his work that focuses on life and art, fact and illusion, as well as politics, society and creativity. I am equally interesting in seeing/reading A Behanding In Spokane.
