Good People

by David David Lindsay-Abaire
Directed by Paul Campion

10th to 17th February 2018

“I never had anyone watching from a window for me. You got lucky.”

Welcome to South Boston USA (“Southie”), where a night on the town means a few games of Bingo. Where this month’s paycheck hardly covers last month’s bills.  And where Margaret (Margie) Walsh has just lost her job. Again. 

Finding herself facing eviction, sharp-tongued single mother Margie will do anything it takes to pay the bills. So when she hears that an old boyfriend who has made good is back in town, she pursues him, hoping that he might just be the ticket to turning her life around. With unexpected results for everyone…

In Good People, Pulitzer prize-winning author David Lindsay-Abaire uses wry humour and astonishingly well-written dialogue to create a funny and tender drama exploring the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing.

 

First seen in the UK at the Hampstead Theatre in 2014 with Imelda Staunton in the lead role (for which she was nominated for an Olivier award) this remarkable play has audiences roaring with laughter one moment and shedding a tear the next.
