Grimly Handsome ()

Produced by

Theatre Animal

Playwright: Julia Jarcho
Director: Jay Turvey


November 3rd, 2017 – November 19th, 2017


This Obie-award winning play is a triptych of urban stories: two unusual Christmas tree salesmen peddle their wares on the street, two cops are on the trail of a serial killer and in a vacant lot people transform in ways they never thought possible. GRIMLY HANDSOME is a haunting, comic thriller that exposes the underbelly of the city and the animal in us all.

Christmas trees. Cops. Pandas. What more could you want? (
