Trustus Theatre Presents: Good People

By David Lindsay-Abaire, Directed by Jim O‘Connor (Recipient of Cleveland’ s Critics Circle Directing Award and nominee for Chicago ‘s Joseph Jefferson Award for directing ) “The New York Times raved that this show is ‘one of the more subtly surprising treats of this theater season’ – TRUST US, you’re in for a intimate evening with great characters.” Nominated for the 2011 Tony Award for Best Play, the 2011 Outer Critics Award for Outstanding New Play, and winner of the 2011 New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play. When Margie Walsh loses her job at a South Boston dollar store, she reaches out to her old friend and flame Mike, a Southie boy who made good when he became a successful doctor. What begins as an attempt to hit Mike up for a job takes on a threatening cast when Margie realizes the power that secrets from Mike‘s past life hold over his current one. Penned by Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire (and past winner of the Trustus Playwrights’ Festival), GOOD PEOPLE is an incisive and funny character study of old friends, old flames and the question of whether you can ever leave the old neighborhood behind.
