October 4 – 7, 2023, 7 pm (approximately 2.5 hours with an intermission)
@ Art Court Theatre (Atelier) at 2 Daly Avenue (next to the Rideau Centre)
Tomo Adachi, an Ottawa-based first-generation Japanese-Canadian actor, would like to invite OJCA/OJCC members to the performance of The Pillowman, an inaugural production of the Marginally Fit Productions. This new theatre company aims to produce stories that provoke discussions on racism
and marginalization, as well as to provide a platform for underrepresented theatre artists.
The Pillowman (by an Irish playwright, Martin McDonagh), is a dark comedy about a writer in a totalitarian state who is interrogated about the content of his short stories and their similarities with a number of murders happening in his town. Because of the themes and strong language, it is not recommended for younger or sensitive viewers.
The Pillowman won the 2004 Olivier Award for Best New Play and was recently revived on the West End.
