Kill Me Now (print)

When Joey enters puberty, his father Jake finds himself in a morally ambiguous position. Joey is severely disabled, but he still has the same sexual desires as any seventeen-year-old boy, only he can’t do anything to relieve the tension. Jake is a widower whose life is devoted to his son, but when he suddenly develops a serious medical condition, he becomes the one to rely on the people around him, including his sister Twyla, his friend Robyn, and Joey’s best friend Rowdy. As Jake’s condition worsens, an ethical dilemma troubles the household as everyone is forced to consider the possibility of saying goodbye.

“ . . . an important play that boldly goes where few plays have gone before it. It’s essential focus on communication and the needs of humanity makes for difficult, confronting theatre.” —Stephen Collins, Britishtheatre

“The characters may be specific but Fraser deals in universal emotions, using them skilfully to bind us to his story.” —Colin MacLean, The Edmonton Sun

 “Yes, it’s funny and brutal and honest. But it is also moving, deeply emotional, and ultimately harrowing. At the final scene there were quite a few in the audience trying to control their sobs.” —Anne Cox, Stage Review
