SMU Student Theatre is putting on the production, “The Pillowman”, beginning this Thursday, March 25. At 8:00 p.m., theatre students will put on the play by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh in Meadows Basement B450.

The show continues every night at 8:00 p.m. until Sunday, March 28.

Directed by freshmen Ted Gwara and Justin Amos, “The Pillowman” is a dark comedy about a fiction writer who gets interrogated about the grisly content of his work and its similarities to a number of child murders happening in his town.

Starring students Ruben Carrazana, Jeffery Moffitt, Adam A. Anderson and Jeffrey Colangelo, the play has received good reviews from critics on the national and international level, so it should be a good play to see at SMU.

SMU Student Theatre (SMUST) is a student organization that, according to the Meadows Web site, “helps to further student work, develop creative art and give students a place and a means to explore the realm of theatre”.
