WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -
Thalian Association is taking its audience to blue-collar Boston with its latest play.
The company is performing Good People by David Lindsay-Abaire.
A single mother of a handicapped adult loses her job and goes to her former high school boyfriend turned successful doctor for work. The play explores how the two of them, now in different worlds, interact.
The show's director explains why he was drawn to this Tony-nominated play.
"The writing was so well done," Anthony Lawson said. "The characters were all there, very defined. Every character that you never see is well-defined. It gives you an entire culture, an entire neighborhood to kind of invest yourself in for two hours."
Lawson also believes the play will stick with you long after it's over.
"This is something you go away with and you have a lot of different questions. It's something that you can talk to your friends about."
