Please join us for an evening that will be educational, fun, exciting and, maybe, a little spine tingling!

Killer Joe

M&D Playhouse

M&D Playhouse presents Killer Joe by Tracy Letts.  The play tells the story of a young drug dealer named Chris who finds himself in desperate need of cash. He and his father Ansel come up with the idea to murder Chris’ mother for her life insurance policy. They hire part-time hitman Joe Cooper to do the job, but complications arise when Joe insists on being paid in advance. Because the two men obviously can’t pay him before they receive their own dividends, Joe decides to accept Chris’ strange and childlike sister Dottie as “retainer” until his money comes through. 

The film version of Killer Joe was released in 2012 and starred Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, and Juno Temple.

This play includes nudity and adult themes not suitable for children.

Killer Joe is presented October 11 – 21, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM with Sunday matinees at 4:00 PM.

 

To reserve seats please visit our website at www.mdplayhouse.com or call (603) 733-5275.

Fryeburg, ME 04037


The Met Opera Live in HD series presents Samson et Dalila at the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center at 1 PM.

Darko Tresnjak, who won a Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical in 2014 for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, makes his Met debut directing a vivid, seductive staging, featuring a monumental setting for the last-act Temple of Dagon, where the hero crushes his Philistine enemies. Sir Mark Elder conducts the first new Met production of the work in 20 years. $26-Adults, $23-Seniors (65+), $18-Students. Order online at www.fryeburgacademy.org/pac, or call the box office at 207-935-9232.
