It’s Southern Hospitality vs. Midwestern Kindness when Maddie and Rob, a Michigan couple, move down to Carson, Georgia and meet their new neighbor, Dr. Benjamin “Doc” Boggs. Doc is a passive aggressive man with very traditional ideas on what it means to be a neighbor. He and Rob begin to butt heads as their cultural differences and temperaments are tested daily against each other. Will they be able to put the past behind them and move on to new beginnings?
Northern Aggression was first produced as And the Creek Don’t Rise at Williamston Theatre in 2011 with Thomas D. Mahard in the role of Doc Boggs. Seven years later, Mahard is taking the stage as the stubborn neighbor once again. Tipping Point veteran, Patrick Loos, returns having just come off of sold out performances of Ripcord as estranged son, Ben, and director Matt Foss returns having last directed at Tipping Point in 2009 for Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some).
