The interpreters of “Killer Joe” are young Italian emergent actors graduated at the Academy of the dramatic art Silvio D’amico of Rome; it is a drama between a thriller and comedy written by the Pulitzer award Tracy Letts. I am Francesco Montanari (26 years old), the “libanese” in the serial TV “Romanzo Criminale”; Alessandro Marventi (25) and Andrea Ricciardi (23) both in the cast of “Romanzo Criminale”; Patrizia Ciabatta (26) and Federica Marchetti (28) who played a part in “Whale Music” of the Oscar award Anthony Minghella. From the stage, the actors express the noir humour that Letts wanted for its “Killer Joe”, it seems to follow (it has been written in 1992)  the atmospheres of Quentin Tarantino and the style of Coen brothers. It is a portrait of the human being brought back to its elementary drives, it makes us laugh, it makes our blood run cold and makes us thinking about the liability of the family before  the ancient binomial sex and money. The translation and the adaptation are by Giampaolo G. Rugo and the direction is by Massimiliano Farau. Killer Joe is the first Letts’ work to be performed in Italy.
