Nutter said the work offers these arguments in a lighthearted but serious manner.
“It’s a little bit of everything,” she said. “There are moments that are really intense, and then sometimes we’re just surprised to see how many laughs there are. David (the playwright) understands the humor in tragedy.”
Nutter said the dry wit of those memorable Southie residents is evident throughout the play. As for bringing that wit to the Centaur stage, Nutter said she “feels like the luckiest actress in the world right now.”
