Theatre fans in store for a "killer" performance as Killer Joe takes to the stage tonight and tomorrow

Showtime beckons this weekend as Killer Joe takes to the
stage at the Tom Rooney Playhouse

The latest creation from Prince Rupert's very active theatre community takes to the stage tonight at the Tom Rooney Playhouse, as the Harbour Theatre ensemble bring to life the tale of Killer Joe

The play, a production first delivered in 1999 was created by Tracy Letts  and offers a sample of life in a Texas trailer park and explores themes of dysfunction that probably resonate well beyond the trailer park gates.

And for anyone that perhaps has ever given thought to having their immediate family members killed off, Killer Joe may strike a chord for your darkest of familial thinking.

The comedy production of the dark variety recently claimed a number of awards at the Skeena Zone Drama Festival,

Harbour Theatre actors who claimed an award at the Festival included Chelsea-Stamp Vincent who gained the best actress nod, along with Best Supporting actor honours for Tyler Portelance.

Also showcasing their talents for the two night run at the Tom Rooney will be George T. Baker, Krista Ediger and Lyle McNish

Trina Decker guided the performance through the rehearsals of the spring into the Skeena Zones hosted in Kitimat last month.

Show time each night is 8PM with the doors to the Tom Rooney swinging open at 7:30PM.

Tickets are fifteen dollars available at Homework or at the door.

Killer Joe has a two night run at the Tom Rooney Playhous
located at 954 Third Avenue West

Due to the content of the production it is not advised as suitable for a young audience.

You can learn more about the work of Harbour Theatre from their website and Facebook page.
