OutCast Productions’ dark comedy, “The Pillowman,” is nearing its swan song with the final two weekends ahead.

The play centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art, according to a recent news release.

It opened July 10 and runs through Saturday, July 25.

Director Katie Woodzick leads the cast of Max Cole-Takanikos, Ned Farley, Jim Scullin and Aaron Simpson. Cole-Takanikos created original, multi-media illustrations for the piece to be paired with music Ashley Eriksson composed specifically for this production.

Performances are at the Black Box Theater at the Island County Fairgrounds, 819 Camano Ave., Langley.

Tickets cost $18 for adults and $14 for students and seniors. All tickets for the Thursday, July 23 performance cost $10. Purchase tickets online at Brown Paper Tickets, www.brownpapertickets.com/event/pr/1726326, or reserve seats and pay at the door by cash or check by emailing ocp@whidbey.com.
