The Pillowman Summary

The Pillowman is a thrilling and funny new drama-comedy. A storyteller is investigated by the police, as his dark fairy tales bare a striking resemblance to a series of bizarre incidents in his town. The Pillowman stars Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, The Big Chill) and Billy Crudup (Almost Famous, The Elephant Man). An exhilarating and gripping new play.
