Together, playwright DAVID LINDSAY-ABAIRE and MTC have brought four outstanding new plays to the New York stage. Their most recent collaboration, RABBIT HOLE, earned Lindsay-Abaire the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Now, he returns to MTC, along with RABBIT HOLE director and Tony Award® winner DANIEL SULLIVAN, to premiere his newest work, the timely and powerful GOOD PEOPLE. FRANCES McDORMAND (Academy Award winner for FARGO; star of MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY and ALMOST FAMOUS), TATE DONOVAN (star of DAMAGES) and a marvelous group of actors from stage and screen make up the vibrant cast of this world premiere play.
Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo... where this month's paycheck covers last month's bills... and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who's made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out.
With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.
