GOOD PEOPLE | Bay Area premiere | Aug 22 - Sept 15, 2013
By David Lindsay-Abaire | Directed by Tracy Young

“Simply good… not only is the play about something – choices, luck and the American class system – but also manages to be heartfelt, thoroughly entertaining.” –TheatreDogs
Margie has spent her whole life in South Boston and most of it down on her luck, but she’s never had it this bad. A middle-aged single mother with a disabled adult daughter at home, she is unemployed, facing eviction and cut off from opportunity in her insular working-class neighborhood. Or is she?
When Margie discovers that a high school flame is now a successful doctor, she swallows her pride and seeks his help, sparking questions about class, commitment and what it means to be a “good person.”
Directed by Oregon Shakespeare Festival regular Tracy Young (The Imaginary Invalid, The Servant of Two Masters), this huge Broadway and national hit by the Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist of Rabbit Hole finally comes to the Bay Area!
