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

Mad Forest is an interesting, innovative and thought provoking play. The production is excellent. The cast members (of which there are 19!) play multiple roles and are uniformly accomplished. The play mixes vignettes, a documentary style and even a bit of fantasy to create a piece that is unique. I went with a group of people and we had all had questions that provided for a lively conversation during the intermission and after the play was over. If not familiar with Ceausescu and the Romanian revolution of 1989, it couldn't hurt to do a quick Wikipedia read before going to the show.
This play runs 2 hours and 30 minutes, and includes smoking of herbal cigarettes and recorded gun fire. Suitable for high schools students and older.
