Killer Joe is a shocking slice-of-life drama straight out of a Texan trailer-park. Chris Smith needs money. Real bad. When the rabbit farm fails he turns to his mother's life insurance policy. One problem - she's still alive. Enter Killer Joe Cooper - the cop with a nice little sideline in murder. Joe drives a hard bargain - money up front or no deal. Can Chris enlist the help of his family? When the charms of his innocent sister Dottie arouse Joe's interest, a desperate plan emerges...

Jaw-dropping amorality, a shocking twist of betrayal, the poignancy of a life lived with little aspiration or hope. The play builds to a truly explosive climax. This is the American family at its most dysfunctional and the darkest and the most savage comedy to emerge from the US in the 90s.

The play features Phil Nichol, Tony Law, Lizzie Roper, Ed Weeks and newcomer Charlotte Jo Hanbury.
