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

I had read mediocre reviews (comparing it unfavorably to Albee's Virginia Wolff), so I was afraid we'd be in for a disappointing evening (las we had with God of Carnage). But, fortunately, instead of Albee, Poor Behavior is more of a riff on Ayckbourn's Norman Conquests. Norman never succeeds in his seduction but the ending is left ambiguous. In Poor Behavior, the seduction is successful; so the play is a bit darker, but again the ending is ambiguous. Seen in the light of Ayckbourn's trilogy, PB is derivative but still highly enjoyable.
