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. Learn More

This charming love story follows Ethel and Norman Thayer as they return to their summer home in Maine. This year, however, their peace is disrupted by a visit from their divorced daughter Chelsea, who arrives with not only a big chip on her shoulder, but her new fiancé and his 13 year-old son, too. Over the course of the summer, an unlikely friendship develops between Norman and the boy, which sparks a renewed zest for life in the Thayer family. Generations collide in this funny and touching classic about a couple in the twilight years of a long and glorious marriage. This play inspired the award-winning hit film starring Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn.
