The Pillowman

Until October 17, 2020

Master of macabre comedy, Martin McDonagh is once again represented in the West End this summer as his Olivier winning 2003 play, The Pillowman returns in this new revival directed by Matthew Dunster, starring Aaron Talyor Johnson and Steve Pemberton. A 'savagely funny' examination of the role of the artist in society and the price of expression, The Pillowman follows a writer and his brother, who under the shadow of a totalitarian regime, are targeted by the authorities after his grisly short stories appear to be the inspiration for some gory child murders - classic McDonagh, then.

October 31, 2020 - February 6, 2021

Described as a mesmerising piece of theatrical magic, Katy Rudd and Joel Horwood's adaptation of Neil Gaiman's 2013 novel was a huge hit at the National Theatre over Christmas last year and now returns to cast its spell over the West End in 2020 when it transfers to the Duke of York's Theatre in October. A fantastical adventure that follows two young friends as they set out to defeat nefarious supernatural forces, it's Gaiman on fine form, brought to life by breathtaking effects, puppetry and more!

The Duke of York's Theatre is a West End Theatre located in St Martin's Lane, and originally opened in 1892 as the Trafalgar Square Theatre, designed by architect Walter Emden. By 1895, it became the Duke of York's, in honour of the future King George V. The theatre was bought by The Ambassador Theatre Group in 1992, and has been the group's London headquarters since. In 1960, the theatre was Grade II listed by English Heritage.
