Synopsis of ‘Good People’
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.
And as we, in Illinois struggle through our own financial insecurity and economic desperation, this play speaks to us. It speaks with lots of laughter and a few tears. Somewhere between Golden Girls and Angie Tribeca, with a bit of Grace & Frankie thrown in for good measure, it rings with the honest voices and wonderful personalities of ‘Good People.’ It’s wild, rough and genuinely funny. It will be a great night in the theatre.
