Set largely in an interrogation room in an unnamed totalitarian state, this black comedy follows fiction writer Katurian as he is questioned by police. The authorities suspect him of committing a series of murders in the area that are strikingly similar to the gruesome crimes described in his short stories. Katurian's mentally challenged brother is also brought in for questioning, and over the course of the play, the brothers are forced to relive the traumatic events of their own upbringing through the lens of Katurian's writings. This brilliant work about storytelling and its implications won Irish playwright Martin McDonagh the 2004 Olivier Award for Best New Play, the 2005 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best New Foreign Play and two Tony Awards.

This was my first off broadway play and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The theatre was small and intimate, but once the actors were on stage my surroundings were completely forgotten. I was engaged from the very moment it started. The entire cast was brilliant. Go and see this play, you will not be disappointed.
Quotes & Highlights

- “An eloquent and provocative investigation of truth and consequences. A gripping mystery, tightly written.” —Time Out NY

About the Ticket Supplier: T. Schreiber Studio
On January 25, 1999 the T. Schreiber Studio was recognized by the Office of the Mayor of the City of New York for, "Its dedication to making it possible for New Yorkers to enjoy some of the most talented actors, directors and playwrights. For 30 years T. Schreiber Studio's commitment to the theater arts has made it one of the foremost professional theatre studios and helped make New York City the Theatre Capitol of the World."
Terry Schreiber was also congratulated on that date by then Vice President (now Nobel laureate) Al Gore, "I am pleased to have this opportunity to send you my congratulations as you are recognized for 30 years of teaching the craft of acting. You should be proud of this accomplishment. Your dedication, commitment and perseverance in nurturing new talent has served the New York theatre community well."
The T. Schreiber Studio began in 1969 with Terry Schreiber teaching classes twice a week to twelve actors in a converted loft on the Upper East Side of New York City. Enrollment increased and the group began mounting productions in what were the early beginnings of New York City's Off-Off Broadway movement and building its reputation of high quality productions and performances.
The studio continued to grow, adding more faculty, more actors, and more plays and in the mid 70's, drama critic Walter Kerr's glowing review in the New York Times of Schreiber's production of The Trip Back Down, brought the Studio much attention and packed houses. The Trip Back Down then moved to Broadway and John Cullum (Northern Exposure) was signed to do the lead.
Throughout the 1980's and into the 90's the T. Schreiber Studio continued to produce good actors and good theatre, adding Betty Buckley to its prestigious faculty and residing at 83 East Fourth Street, the burgeoning street of Off-Off Broadway. During that time Terry Schreiber continued his own directing career with two more Broadway shows: Devour the Snow and K-2, and numerous regional theatre productions providing more casting opportunities for studio actors.
In 1996 the Studio moved to its current, renovated multi-use space on the 7th floor of 151 West 26th Street in New York's lively Chelsea neighborhood. Classes and productions run continuously throughout the year.
