Culture Shock

PillowmanIn Martin McDonagh's The Pillowman, a fiction writer in a totalitarian state is questioned about his violent short stories due to their similarity with a series of strange events around town. A new production of the play, directed by Grubb Graebner, is currently playing at the Vortex Theatre (2004½ Central SE). The Vortex has a distinguished history of producing McDonagh's plays, so odds are they'll do this one justice. The Pillowman runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 6 p.m. There'll be a free post-show discussion with the cast and crew on Sunday, Oct. 15. The play runs through Oct. 29. $12. 247-8600.

Book Review

After the Apocalypse

The Road

The violence of men has always been the great sucking undertow of Cormac McCarthy’s fiction. In Outer Dark and Blood Meridian, men circled back and back to their most primal nature, as if American history—begun in anguish and bloodshed—could only end that way. With his latest novel, The Road, McCarthy reaches the ignoble finale of this regression. Swift, black, beautiful and brutal, here is a tale without a speck of hope.
