Where Passion Plays


Now playing in the Right Brain Project theater space....

Black Mamba Theatre presents The Pillowman by Martin McDonagh

Black Mamba Theatre is excited to announce their inaugural production of Martin McDonagh's award winning play, The Pillowman.

The narrative follows Katurian, a writer living in a totalitarian state, who is interrogated by two detectives about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to recurring child murders in his town. All evidence finds Katurian and his deranged brother Michal guilty under penalty of death. Backed into a corner, Katurian engages in a desperate battle to save all he has left  his stories.

This dark tale, combined with a sharp ensemble and the claustrophobic Right Brain Project Theatre space in Ravenswood, will immerse the audience into the confines of a totalitarian holding cell, plunging into the rabbit hole of twisted stories, gallows humor, and murder.

Directed by Jeff Newman. Starring: Neil Edwards, Gary Murphy, Derek Dziak, and Greg Mehl. Also featuring: Loren Jones, Molly Wallace, and Johnny Kalita (Founder and Artistic Director of Black Mamba Theatre).

Black Mamba Theatre specializes in the psychological thriller. We explore stories with a dissolving sense of reality, moral ambiguity, and tormented relationships between obsessive and pathological characters. Our mission is to tell "Dark tales with a tight grip and sharp bite"

Presented Thursday through Saturday evenings at The Right Brain Project Theatre space beginning , running March 10 - March 26. Tickets are available here.
