Production images have been released of Orlando Bloom and cast of Tracy Letts’ black comedy thriller, Killer Joe which opens this week at Trafalgar Studios.
The Lord of The Rings star leads the cast in the title role of Killer Joe, alongside Kingsman: The Secret Service Sophie Cookson who make her West End debut as Dottie, Benidorm’s Adam Gillen as Chris, Neve McIntosh as Sharla and Gavin & Stacey’s Steffan Rhodri as Ansel.
Letts’ award winning play is about a family who hire a police detective and part-time contract killer to murder their estranged matriarch for her insurance money. But the plan spirals out of control when he comes face to face with their innocent daughter Dottie. A tense, gut twisting thriller, it asks where the moral line is drawn in the fight for survival.
