Killer Joe starring Orlando Bloom and Sophie Cookson had its press night earlier this month. While critics were divided by Tracy Letts’ black play, Sophie’s performance garnered his praise:

“She’s played here by the superb Sophie Cookson, the character’s simplicity co-existing beautifully with her sudden flashes of clear vision” The Independent

“It is, however, extremely well acted. Sophie Cookson admirably suggests that Dottie’s seeming simplicity conceals a sharp-eyed awareness” The Guardian
