Heads roll, shatter and blow in KILLER JOE, the savagely funny, pitch-dark comedy by Pulitzer Prize Winning playwright Tracy Letts (AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY).

The play focuses on the Smith family, a greedy, vindictive clan of trailer-trash Texans who hatch a plan to murder their estranged, naggy, alcoholic matriarch to cash in on her insurance policy. Unable to bring themselves to do the deed, they hire Killer Joe Cooper (Ken Bradley), a full-time cop and part-time contract killer. Once he steps into their trailer, their simple plan quickly spirals out of control.

Killer Joe has a killer cast including multiple B Iden Payne and
Austin Critics Table Nominees and Winners Ken Bradley and Joey Hood as well as the talented chops of Katie DeBuys, Melissa Recalde, and Joe Reynolds. The mix of these great actors and this dark script could be volatile.

Warning: Killer Joe contains nudity, cigarette smoke, gunshots, violence, and adult situations
