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

My Uncle Arly
By Shôn Dale-Jones and David Farmer
Shôn Dale-Jones, director
West Coast Premiere
One of Britain’s favorite writers, Edward Lear has delighted generations of children and adults alike with his deliciously silly and brilliant nonsense verse. Now, Hoipolloi invites audiences on a journey into Lear’s weird and wonderfully witty imagination as he embarks on an adventure towards the great Gromboolian plain. Inspired by his life, poems and illustrations, My Uncle Arly is an inventive and engaging production full of music, song and clowning that delves deep into Lear’s Victorian sense of humor. Filled with some of his best-loved characters, the show creates a stupendously mad and gloriously giggly world where easels become birds, hats fly and where we meet the pobble who has no toes and the dong with the luminous nose.
