Kill Local


By Mat Smart
Directed by Jackson Gay

Sheila and her sister Abigail work for their mother’s small family business. Sheila’s job used to be a source of joy and exhilaration; now she’s questioning everything. But when you’re an assassin, being uninspired means getting sloppy, and getting sloppy means getting killed. Kill Local is a pitch-black comedy about blood ties, revenge and trying to get unstuck – especially when your life is dedicated to ending others’.

Kill Local received its first reading as part of the Playhouse’s acclaimed DNA New Work Series, which offers playwrights the opportunity to develop a script and receive valuable audience feedback. Several mainstage Playhouse productions have been developed through the DNA New Work Series, including Miss You Like HellThe Last Tiger in HaitiBlueprints to FreedomThe Who & The What and Chasing the Song.
