Who will be joining Orlando Bloom in Killer Joe?
The full cast has been announced to join Hollywood star Orlando Bloom in Killer Joe at Trafalgar Studios. Bloom will star as a cop who moonlights as a killer-for-hire in multi award-winning Tracy Letts’ blackly comic thriller.
The cast will feature Sophie Cookson (‘Sidney’ in Netflix series Gypsy, secret agent Roxanne “Roxy” Morton in the films Kingsman: The Secret Service and its sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Adam Gillen (currently starring at the National Theatre as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in the acclaimed production of Amadeus, and best known as Liam in five series of ITV’s Benidorm). Neve McIntosh (Dr Who Lizard Queen Madam Vastra, a sword-wielding, human-eating late Victorian crime fighter and Kay Gillies, an award-winning career-minded architect in BBC1’s thriller The Replacement) and Steffan Rhodri (Labour Whip Walter Harrison in James Graham’s This House at the Garrick Theatre, and best known for portraying Dave Coaches on Gavin & Stacey and as Reg Cattermole in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I).
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 and current West End hit The Best Manat The Playhouse) asks where the moral line is drawn in the fight for survival.
Killer Joe will play a strictly limited 13-week season from Friday 18 May – Saturday 18 August at Trafalgar Studio.
