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
When England’s heroic Henry V dies unexpectedly in his prime, the inexperienced boy-King Henry VI ascends the throne with catastrophic results. Rallying under the banner of the sorceress Joan of Arc, the French quickly rise in rebellion to reclaim their lands conquered by the late Henry V. As England’s conquests are wrenched violently away and their military might decimated, Henry VI’s court degenerates into rancorous infighting. And when a quarrel between the arrogant Duke of Somerset and the ambitious Duke of York results in the English nobility donning red and white roses to declare their partisan loyalties, the groundwork has been laid for the outbreak of the bloody and treasonous Wars of the Roses.
