THE PILLOWMAN (2008)
Directed by Kevin Becker
In a nameless totalitarian state, a writer of childrens' stories is brought into an interrogation room to be questioned for murder. What follows is a harsh, funny, and ultimately dark tale where family secrets are brought to light and the cruelty of man brought into focus. This masterpiece by Martin McDonagh takes us through the most brutal of man's impulses leading up to a shocking conclusion that will stay with you long after you've left the theater. Performing at the Lowndes Shakespeare Center.

"...if The Pillowman is true to what Hubris is capable of, let's have more." Elizabeth Maupin (Orlando Sentinel)
"Blood isn’t the only ingredient stewing in the pressure pot of a plot performed by Hubris Theatre Company; also simmering are universal issues of humanity, like bond versus bondage, nature versus nurture, censorship versus freedom of expression … there’s really no end." Lindy T. Shepard (Orlando Weekly)
"Hubris Theatre opens with a strong, gripping drama, and I look for this company to give Empty Spaces some serious artistic competition." - Carl F. Gauze (Ink 19)
