Tracy Letts has written a powerful character study about the seedy side of life, and is filled with violence, revenge, hate, greed, sex,  and humor. Somehow, Mr. Letts has taken the worst in humans, put it on stage, and has sprinkled humor through the violence.

A trailer-park take on Double Indemnity, this plot brings out the worst in everyone. Chris Smith needs to kill his thieving mother to get her life insurance. He hires Killer Joe, a crooked cop, to get the job done, and pulls his loser father, sexpot stepmother and off-kilter sister into the scheme. 

Note: This play contains some sex, violence, and nude content, and is recommended for those who are eighteen years of age and older.
