Event Info

Cardiff’s most acclaimed and adventurous amateur theatre group, Everyman Theatre, brings to the Chapter stage a dark fairy-tale world in the best traditions of the Brothers Grimm, from Oscar-winning screenwriter Martin McDonagh (In Bruges; Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; The Banshees of Inisherin).

Eastern Europe, circa 1980. Katurian, a writer of macabre children’s stories, is dragged into a police interrogation. A string of crimes, reminiscent of his bizarre stories, has been uncovered. With the clock ticking to his imminent execution, can Katurian convince the police that all he does is write stories?
