Often hilarious, sometimes poignant, and always fascinating, GOOD PEOPLE is the story of Margie Walsh, a minimum-wage earning single mother living in South Boston, and her need to find work when she loses her job at the local Dollar Store. Her attempts take her to the office of an old highschool flame, Michael--now a successful doctor, who has escped "Southie" and moved to the much tonier Chestnut Hill, and developed convenient amnesia about his roots along the way.
What happens when Margie meets Mikey, is the crux of the play. The plot is revealed through dialogue with a crackling energy, and the dramatist's beady observation of the class divide constantly rings true. A skeleton in the suave doctor's past is skillfully excavated, and the play shows how much chance and luck play in our lives.
Thought-provoking, moving, and funny enough to make you laugh out loud repeatedly, this play will have you laughing through your tears, and left with some real questions about the nature of class in America.
