Katurian the writer stays in and writes stories. That's it. Brilliant but often grotesque tales, shaped by a twisted childhood experiment conducted by his own parents. Now Katurian has been blindfolded and taken out of his home to face questioning at the hands of two brutal detectives. Are Katurian and his brother, Michal, responsible for the murder of three children? Martin McDonagh's play is a harrowing and blackly funny meditation on the tricky power of words to shape the world.
