The haves and the have-nots come face-to-face in the Broadway hit Good People. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole), this Tony-nominated dramatic comedy finds struggling single mother Margie Walsh laid off from her job at the dollar store and left with the reality that her South Boston neighborhood is providing the same level of opportunity it always has: none. It's the kind of place where, for many people, this month's paycheck covers last month's bills. Facing eviction, Maggie's forced to turn to an old high school flame for help. But he's now a successful physician living in the suburbs ... and Margie is way out of her element. With his signature humorous glow, David Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakable hope that come with having next to nothing in America. Learn More

Wow..I still can't believe the actors were able to find some much humor in such a very touchy subject.
I love how the Director kept all the scenes moving , transporting the audience from scene to scene via creative lighting.

A dark comedy written by George F. Walker, the Toronto based playwright who is famous for giving us character’s similar with Cohen brother’s in their darkness and the humor that comes from it.
The play unfolds in an exciting, non-linear fashion and features a top-notch cast of experienced stage actors from Chicago, New York, London and Los Angeles.
This is SkyPilot Theatre Company’s first L.A. Premiere.
Directed by James Sharpe, who directed the critically acclaimed 30th anniversary production of Sexual Perversity In Chicago by David Mamet for SkyPilot in 2006.
Starring Jaime Andrews, Eric Curtis Johnson, Phillipe Simon, Bob Rusch and Gemma Massot.
