Killer Joe

Arsenal Center for the Arts
321 Arsenal Street Watertown

Get your share of some Texas-sized and truly twisted dark comedy in Killer Joe, written by acclaimed playwright Tracy Letts. This is the sordid and satirical tale of Chris, a drug dealer who decides his best chance of saving his own skin involves killing his mom for the insurance money. Other members of the Smith family see dollar signs and join Chris in hiring Killer Joe Cooper (who also happens to be a cop) to execute the contract. All hell breaks loose when this host of incompetent, back-stabbing characters twist themselves into one heck of a deep-fried, white-trash mess. Much like a train wreck, it's hard to look away from the staggering level of dysfunction and disturbing psychoses that appear on stage. Incidentally, Letts also wrote the screenplay for the 2011 film of the same name, which starred Matthew McConaughey as the title character.
