My reviews of the British theatre collective Headlong’s adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984, and Forum Theatre’s new staging of Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman, are in today’s Washington City Paper.

Here’s the trailer the 1984 Michael Radford’s version of 1984 that I mention I saw at an impressionable age. I can’t imagine ever saying this in any other context, but the Eurythmics soundtrack was not a good idea.
