Welcome to the sultry and sordid world of Texas seediest trailer park. Spend an evening in the trailer-home of the Smiths: a relentlessly dysfunctional family looking to rise above their white-trash squalor. Eldest son Chris embroils everyone in a plot to kill his mother and collect her life insurance policy. They hire cop-by-day/hitman-by-night Killer Joe Cooper to take care of the dirty deed. But when Killer Joe takes an interest in Chris virginal younger sister, Dottie, all hell breaks loose. What follows is an explosive mix of sex, blood, and comedy: battered, deep-fried, and served up with a side of grits. Audience members will be free to explore the trailer park before, during and after the show to uncover more of the story thanks to various trailer installations.
Killer Joe will mark the second installment of our Premier Series which presents site-specific versions of the debut plays by renowned playwrights. The Premier Series began with last years critically acclaimed, award-winning production of Jez Butterworths Mojo. Letts multi-award winning debut has been performed in 12 countries and translated into 15 languages but this marks its Vancouver premier! Local audiences will know Letts work from the Arts Clubs 2011 production of his Pulitzer Prize winning August: Osage County.
Both women will be required to be fully nude onstage. The play contains mature subject matter, violence and coarse language. This will be a very intimate production that will take place in a small trailer on a vacant lot with the actors performing inches from the audience. Please only submit if you are comfortable with the above warnings. For the audition you will asked to prepare a side and perform with a Dallas, Texas accent.
