Orlando Bloom (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit trilogy, the Pirates of the Caribbean series) stars as a cop who moonlights as a killer-for-hire in the multi award-winning Tracy Letts' blackly comic thriller, Killer Joe.

The Smith family hatch a plan to murder their estranged matriarch for her insurance money. They hire Joe Cooper, a police detective and part-time contract killer, to do the job. But once he enters their trailer home and comes face to face with their innocent daughter, the plan spirals out of control...

A tense, gut-twisting thriller, Killer Joe, directed by Simon Evans (The Dazzle and Bug at Found111, The Best Man) asks where the moral line is drawn in the fight for survival.

Killer Joe plays a strictly limited 13-week season from Friday 18 May - Saturday 18 August at Trafalgar Studio 1.

What an amazing performance by the whole cast. We were truly gripped from start to finish. Great venue and even though we were at the top and back we still had an amazing view of the stage and the actors

Great performance, I would definitely recommend this play. intimate setting enhanced atmosphere and intensity. All actors were fantastic.


Killer Joe is brilliant - it is dark funny and totally mesmerising, Orlando Bloom leads a wonderful cast, the set design is stunning and the music and sound effects are spot on. The best play I have seen in years. Not to be missed.

Russ Simpson 12th August

A very personal stage set-up, in such an exquisite theatre. The play was an explosion of fear, control, and incredible acting - especially from Adam Gillen. Great stuff!
