Where we come from, where we’re going, and the choices we make, or don’t make, along the way. These are the themes underpinning the blunt, yet touching, story of Margie Walsh and her Southie life in David Lindsay-Abair’s award winning play Good People. With humour and true to life language, Lindsay-Abair has created characters who draw us in from the opening scene and hold us through the unresolved but hopeful ending. We follow Margie as she desperately grasps at threads in her attempt to find employment. Is it luck or is it simply our destiny that determines where we end up in the social strata? Can anyone really do it alone? And can we still be “good people” as we climb? Thought provoking, hilarious at times, and poignant, Good People promises to bring up moments of reflection and challenges the idea of luck vs hard work in our quest to get ahead.Southie, the Boston neighbourhood that hangs on to you. Margie, fired from the Dollar Store, facing eviction and jobless - tries to reconnect with someone from her past who made it out. Who "made good." With warmth, humour, and aching authenticity, Pulitzer Prize Winner, David Lingdsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole) brings us people we recognize - no matter which side of the tracks we hail from. Adult themes and language that may be offensive to some.
