Big Idea Theatre goes full throttle with its 2012 season on Friday, April 13, with the opening of “Killer Joe “by Tracy Letts.

This hard-hitting show is the first play written by the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “August: Osage County” and the well-loved “Superior Donuts.”

The Smith family gets more than it bargained for when it hires full-time cop, part-time killer, Joe Cooper, to knock off a not-so-beloved family member for her insurance money. Alluringly offensive and uncompromisingly violent, this slice of white-trash Texas noir hits the funny bone as it goes for the jugular!

This show is directed by Scott Divine and features the stage-busting talents of Rick Eldredge, Wade Lucas, Shannon Mahoney, Justin D. Muñoz and Kat Wolinski.

Killer Joe contains nudity, profanity, violence, and strong adult themes and situations. No children permitted.

Show dates are April  13-16, 19-22, 26-28 and May 3- 5. Showtimes are 8 p.m.  on                 Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays; 2:30 p.m. on Sundays. All “Thrifty Thursday” show tickets are $10 (April 19, 26, May 3 only). General admission tickets are $15; SARRTA/Senior/Student tickets are $13.

Big Idea Theatre is located at 1616 Del Paso Blvd. in Sacramento.

For more information or tickets call the box office at (916) 960-3036 or visit bigideatheatre.com.
