Mike Fabian Theatre 110 Monday, February 11 The Pillowman Reflection The theme of The Pillowman refers to the concept of dualism. In the play, there are constantly two things such as two brothers, two policemen, two sets, and even Katurians name is Katurian Katurian ironically speaking. Another theme of dualism is that Katurian is raised by his family for the first seven years of his life with love and joy. His next seven years he heard screams coming from the other room but his parents always told him that it was his imagination. The main conflict in the story refers to Katurian battling against himself, his brother, and the detectives trying to convict him of a murder he didn’t commit. The style of this play fits in with the style of realism. It attempts to reflect upon everyday people and problems that happen everyday. Everything on the stage was something of a real life scenario and the characters weren’t some type of fairy tale story. This was a successful production of The Pillowman because it represented the characters accurately and kept the audience’s attention.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
