TUCSON, ARIZONA- Award-Winning Black Comedy to Open in Tucson this Friday, November 20th


E and A Productions, LLC, will be presenting as its first mainstage offering, Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman. It will be presented November 20th through December 6th, 2009 at Zuzi’s Theatre, 738 North 5th Avenue. Performances will be Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 6:00pm. Tickets are $22.00 and are available at


The Pillowman is a 2003 play by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh. An especially dark black comedy, it tells the tale of Katurian, a fiction writer living in a police state who is interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories, and their similarities to a number of bizarre child murders occurring in his town. The play received the 2004 Olivier Award for Best New Play, the 2004-5 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best New Foreign Play, and two Tony Awards for production. It was nominated for the 2004 Evening Standard Award for Best New Play.


E&A hired Eugenia Woods to come from Portland, OR to direct the piece. She has both directed and produced theatre for many years, and has earned praise for her work in Tucson, Phoenix, Portland, and New York City.


Says Producer Alex Samaniego, “The Pillowman is a show we have always wanted to produce. The writing is so brilliant, so true to life, that you often find yourself laughing and crying at the same time. The work is both tragic and amusing and it stays with you far after the show is over.”
