David Lindsay-Abaire's GOOD PEOPLE
Margie Walsh doesn't expect much from her hand-to-mouth existence in South Boston, where a few lucky rounds of bingo can mean the rent is paid on time. After losing her job at the local dollar store, Margie reaches out for help to an old high school flame who made it out of the neighborhood, and she soon discovers that not everyone wants to remember their humble beginnings. A funny and insightful new play, Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire's Good People explores whether we can all have the American Dream.
