Killer Joe had its official West End opening last night and, having enjoyed the rollercoaster ride of Tracy Letts’ black comedy, we can confirm it’s a show to die for.

And celebrating his return to the West End after a decade’s absence, Orlando Bloom – yes, of Lord Of The Rings and Pirates Of The Carribean fame – and the rest of the all-star cast spoke to us about how they were relishing slaying Trafalgar Studios audiences night after night.

Killer Joe is written by the multi-award-winning Tracy Letts, who also penned the film of the same name. Along with Bloom in the mysterious titular role, this revival stars Sophie Cookson as the young and innocent Dottie, Adam Gillen as the conniving Chris, Neve McIntosh as Chris’ step-mother Sharla and Steffan Rhodri as Chris’ father Ansel.

A tense, gut-twisting thriller, Killer Joe, directed by Simon Evans (The Dazzle and Bug at Found111, The Best Man) asks where the moral line is drawn in the fight for survival.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.
