Transcript

  1. The Pillowman<br />By: Martin McDonagh<br />
  2. Exposition<br />Takes place in present day<br />A police interrogation room<br />The main characters are Katurian, Michal, Tupolski, and Ariel<br />The protagonist is Katurian, who is a writer of two stories about murder<br />
  3. Inciting Incident<br />Katurian and Michal are being interrogated on murders. Katurian wrote about them in his stories, and Michal admits to killing three children. Katurian denies it.<br />
  4. Conflict<br />Katurian did not commit the murders and doesn’t feel the need to be questioned about it. He is a writer, and wants to get back to what he loves. It is his brothers fault and he feels that Michal is to blame.<br />
  5. Rising Action<br />Katurian actually had killed his brother and the three other children. Ariel and Tupolski both question him but he cannot answer a single one. Katurian did in fact kill his parents so Ariel and Tupolski decide that he deserves to die for what he did.<br />
  6. Climax<br />Needing to erase all memory of the stories, Ariel insists he is going to burn all of his books. <br />As Ariel is about to torch the papers,Katurianstands up and tells the story about how the Pillowman came to Michal when he was young<br />
  7. Falling Action<br />Midway through his speech, Katurian is shot and killed<br />In the end, Ariel does not burn Katurian’s stories<br />
  8. Katurian<br />I would classify Katurian as a static character. He remains the same throughout the play. He is a writer and does not go through a change. He committed murder in the beginning and tells lies saying he did not kill his brother, when in actuality, he did.<br />Katurian did not get along with his parents which ultimately led to their murder. He wrote terrible stories about death which came true.<br />
