Grimly Handsome

Type: Text

Last night I woke up and found that I was not at home. And I was not wearing my own clothes. And then I wasn’t sure. Maybe they were my clothes, and I was someone else.

In an unnamed American city, two strangers sell Christmas trees on the sidewalk; two cops work to solve a killing spree; and a young woman finds herself transforming in ways she could never have imagined.
A darkly comic thriller exploring the margins of a city and the violent fantasies they inspire.

Julia Jarcho’s Obie Award-winning American play has its UK premiere at The Site, a new space at the Royal Court in December 2017.
