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

Hard to hear/follow at first. Very good play, once story gets going. Best bet is to be in centermost seats...theater is in semi-round, so in side sections actors often are faced away from you. Plus at least one actor is deaf, so his speech can be difficult to follow, especially if you can't see his face. That said, good play that deals with issues most of us haven't given much thought to; very well staged and played.
