Synopsis:
Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo and this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills. When single mother Margie is fired from the dollar store, she’s desperate to find work. Margie hopes that an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start, and she’s is willing to risk what little she has left to find out. Lindsay-Abaire returns to his hometown roots with this play, and brings his signature humor to the exploration of the struggles, shifting loyalties, and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America. 2011 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play.

“…[a] very fine new play… one of the more subtly surprising treats of this theater season.” – NY Times.
“Bringing the same clear-eyed emotional observation that distinguished his Pulitzer winner, “Rabbit Hole,” David Lindsay-Abaire has crafted another penetrating drama about deeply relatable issues, albeit this time with more warming doses of humor.” —Hollywood Reporter. “Wonderful…”Good People” is poignant, brave and almost subversive in its focus on what it really means to be down on your luck.” —NY Post. “… as sensitive a modern playwright as can be heard these days…his best work to date… – Slant Magazine.
