Communique: Clyde Edgerton's "Killer Diller" Onstage At Theatre Now Through April 29
Director Zach Hanner says author Clyde Edgerton was inspired to write the novel Killer Diller by experiences in his own life, including a place where he lived in Durham where a halfway house, a diet center, and a church were all the street where he lived. Theatre Now presents Killer as a play on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:00pm through April 29.
The show tells the story of Wesley, a young man finishing up his time in a halfway house who falls in love with Phoebe, who is working her way through a weight loss program. Both of these programs are on the campus of a Christian University, and Wesley plays in the halfway house band-the group is only allowed to play gospel music, but they want to sing the blues. Listen to director Zach Hanner talk about the show above.
The show features a full band providing gospel and blues. Tickets are available at 910-399-3669, at the door, and online.
