If there was any doubt that Theatre Coup d’Etat’s new production The Pillowman was going to be an intense live theater experience, the show notes for the multi-award winning play by Martin McDonaugh of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Seven Psychopaths include several warnings about graphic violence, elements of torture, disturbing adult content, flashing lights, and simulated gun use. And it’s part comedy! July 1-July 20th. 7:30 PM – $18-40. —Hitara
