Martin McDonagh’s play The Pillowman is to have its first run in the West End, in a production starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Steve Pemberton.
It will run at the Duke of York’s Theatre from July 24, for a 12-week season, with a press night on August 5. The play will be directed by Matthew Dunster, who helmed Hangmen at the Royal Court and in the West End.
At every performance, 20 tickets will be available on a ‘pay what you can’ basis.
The play has set and costume design by Anna Fleischle and sound design by Ian Dickinson.
It is produced by Empire Street Productions.
James Bierman, from the company, said: ”I really hope that with this play, this cast and for this production, we can welcome both established and new playgoers into the West End, and that this pricing accessibility will give those audiences the thrill of live theatre at its very best.”
The play originally premiered at the National Theatre in 2003, starring Jim Broadbent.
