EVERETT, Wash. – Everett Community College students will perform the intense, dark comedy “The Pillowman” at 7:30 p.m. May 29-31 and June 5-7 in EvCC’s Baker Hall, Room 120.

In Martin McDonah’s “The Pillowman,” the threat of execution looms as four individuals, all damaged irrevocably by their childhoods, desperately fight to decipher fiction from reality. 

Two policemen in a totalitarian dictatorship accuse author, Katurian, and his mentally handicapped brother, Michal, of child murders resembling three of Katurian’s horrific children’s stories. Ultimately, Katurian must choose between his own fate, his brother’s and that of his fictional creations that seem to have taken on a life of their own. 

The cast includes: Dylan Malgazzini, Geoff Kuth, Alex DeRoest, Timothy Prater, Nevin Phair, Chelsea Burlile and Nicole Greyson.

The play is directed by Kristina Sutherlan Rowell. Production staff includes: Elizabeth Barrett, Daniel Lund, Brian Wolbert and Noah Holland.

The play includes mature, adult, graphic content and explicit language and viewers is not appropriate for children. Viewers must be at least 10 years old to attend.
