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
, considered to be the pinnacle of the Bard’s four great tragedies (along with Hamlet, King Lear and Macbeth) opens A Noise Within’s 2005-06 season. While other Shakespeare characters are impressively evil in their own way, none of them enjoys the same diabolical role as Iago; his hatred for and jealousy of the noble Moor wreaks havoc and destruction as victims fall by the wayside, one by one. The play also deals with themes of trust, honor and reputation, as well as patriarchy and the political state.
Military superman Othello rushes from Venice to the Isle of Cyprus, young bride Desdemona in tow, to crush a deadly invasion. In a culture of warriors in search of a war, the great general is seduced by his subordinate and masterful liar, “honest” Iago into confronting his savage within. Shakespeare’s chamber drama charts the destruction of innocence by a malignant will.
