Good People

A riveting drama!
by David Lindsay-Abaire

Sep 3 – Nov 6

They say “money talks,” but who hears you if you’re poor? A single mother of a disabled daughter, Margie has lost her job at the dollar store and faces eviction. Desperate, she tracks down an old friend who escaped their blue-collar neighborhood to become a wealthy doctor. Margie decides he’s her last chance to turn her life around. Brimming with sharp humor, Good People will have you talking long after the show about the struggle between the haves and the have-nots in America.

Note: Good People contains adult subject matter and intense language—including profanity and racial slurs. It is recommended for mature audiences.
