Killer Joe centres on The Smith family who hatch a plan to murder their estranged matriarch for her insurance money. They hire Joe Cooper, a police detective and part-time contract killer, to do the job. But once he enters their trailer home and comes face to face with their innocent daughter, the plan spirals out of control… A tense, gut-twisting thriller, Killer Joe, asks where the moral line is drawn in the fight for survival.

Killer Joe will play a strictly limited 13-week season until Saturday 18 August. It’s directed by Simon Evans (The Best Man, West End) and produced by Emily Dobbs Productions and Empire Street Productions.
