7. The Pillowman

by Martin McDonagh

Jesus, this is perhaps the best funniest and darkest play if read. It's brilliant. An actor friend of mine tried to talk me into paying 70 bucks to see the play when it hit New York but everything he tried to tell me about it seemed just plain nuts. So I'm not going to try to explain it here for fear that you'll never see it or pick up a copy.

McDonagh also wrote and directed the movie In Bruges this past year, which was truly outstanding. Grossly underrated. You must see it.
