“A funny, surprising and moving search for connection in modern America.” After five years in prison, Andy returns to her small, economically depressed hometown to restart her life; her only job option is on the kill floor of the local slaughterhouse. Her choice to take the job brings her to a clearer understanding of class, race, and status, on the job and in her everyday social interactions, and complicates her efforts to reunite with her teenage son, a vegan with a budding political awareness, who faces his own sometimes parallel challenges within the exploitative system in which we live, love, and die.
Kill Floor won the 2014 L. Arnold Weissberger Award of the Williamstown Theatre Festival. It received its world premiere at NYC’s LCT3/Lincoln Center Theater in October 2015 and played at American Theatre Company, Chicago, from March 2016.
