Clyde Edgerton's 'Killer Diller' debuts on stage in Wilmington

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Clyde Edgerton's novel Killer Diller made its Wilmington debut at TheatreNOW.

The novel was adapted into a movie in 2004 starring Lucas Black.

Killer Diller follows the story of a young man finishing his time in a halfway house, who falls for a young woman working her way through a weight loss program adjacent to his work release program. Their college-sponsored gospel group try to figure out how they can make it as a blues band.

Zach Hanner, who is directing the play, said the show at TheatreNOW, more closely resembles the novel than the film.

Hanner joined us on WECT News First at Four to talk about the performance.

The show runs through April 29 and is also accompanied by a 3-course meal.
