Katie Holmes' character in Dead Accounts keeps it casual.
Playing Lorna, whose estranged brother returns to the family's Ohio hometown after ages away, newly flush and obviously harboring a secret, Holmes' role isn't a glamourous one—rather, she's decidedly dressed down for the occasion.
But, as you can see in these new pics from the production, the 33-year-old's star power can't help but shine through, even when she's just bundled up in jeans and shapeless sweaters.
And considering the passionate kiss she shares with costar Josh Hamilton, the plain-clothes act obviously doesn't dampen her sex appeal, either.
Dead Accounts, written by Smash creator Theresa Rebeck, is in the middle of a preview run at NYC's Music Box Theatre ahead of its Nov. 29 premiere.
Judy Greer and Norbert Leo Butz, as the prodigal son, also star.
