"One electric shock of a moment in the first act jolts comfort-food-fed Broadway audiences the way the shower scene in "Psycho" must have slapped moviegoers four decades ago." Winner of the 2004 Olivier Award (Best New Play), the 2004 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award (Best New Foreign Play) and two Tony Awards, this dark adult fairytale is sure to delight those with a taste for the macabre! Katurian, a writer of grisly short stories, has been arrested by two detectives, Ariel and Tupolski, because some of his stories resemble recent child murders happening in town. Katurian denies any knowledge of the murders, but the detectives claim that Katurian's mentally challenged brother sitting in the next cell, Michal, has just confessed to committing the murders together... Two-time Academy Award winning playwright Martin McDonagh has weaved an unforgettable tale that "speaks to fears people mistakenly think they leave behind when they outgrow night lights." "Overall, those who enjoy tough, smart theatre...will find this production thought-provoking and funny." This production contains strong language, adult themes and graphic descriptions of violence. Not suitable for children or those who may be easily offended.
