This is an original stage play by local playwright Marilynn Barner Anselmi. Although it is based on true events surrounding the North Carolina Eugenics Program, the play is a set in fictional circumstances. YOU WOULDN'T EXPECT focuses on a group of characters and how they are involved and affected by the sterilization program that changed so many lives, and, in turn, prevented others. This story is an intense drama that showcases the relationship of two of the women in the group. Mary Tom Walker (the Deputy Coordinator at the local Eugenics Office) and Temperence Hedgepeth (her new assistant coordinator) are thrown together by the powers that be and are forced to work with each other despite their obvious differences. Ms. Anselmi wonderfully develops the individual stories of the protagonist, the antagonist, and the people they interact with that twists all around in a final breath-taking climactic moment.
