From the playwright of 2015’s wildly popular Underground show: BUG, and the hit play and film: AUGUST OSAGE COUNTY, comes a disturbing and darkly comic play, unlike anything you’ve seen onstage.
Chris Smith, a Texan low-life who finds himself in considerable debt to a loan-shark, decides the only solution is to murder his mother to collect the insurance money. Getting together with his father, Ansel, they decide to hire Joe Cooper, a contract killer who also happens to be a police detective. When they find they cannot pay Joe’s fee up front, they reach an unusual deal on how to retain his services, quite possibly endangering the lives of Chris, Ansel, his stepmother, Sharla, and his younger sister, Dottie.
*A NOTE ON THE CONTENT*
This play contains a significant amount of adult language and humor, violence, thematic material that may be uncomfortable for some, loud sound effects, and sexual depictions, including assault. Viewer discretion is strongly advised before seeing this production.
