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

This powerfully explosive play takes us under the veil as one actress performs nine stunning portraits drawn over a cross section of Iraqi women from ages 13 to 70.
9 Parts of Desire delves into the many conflicting aspects of what it means to be a woman in the age-old war zone that is Iraq, providing us with an unusually timely meditation on the ancient, the modern and the feminine in a country overshadowed by war.
