Nominated for a 2011 Tony Award for Best Play, Good People is a funny, tough and tender story about the insurmountable class divide. When Margie Walsh loses her job at a South Boston dollar store, she reaches out to her old flame Mike, a neighborhood boy who escaped and became a successful doctor. Margie's attempt to hit Mike up for a job takes on a surprising twist when she realizes the power a secret from Mike's past holds. From Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire, Good People looks at the extraordinary consequences of choosing to hold on to the past or leave it behind. “Thoroughly absorbing ... Good People is good stuff” (Variety) and one of the finest new American plays.

"Good People is better than good, it's great theater - one of the handful of truly essential new American plays so far this century. I can't imagine anyone not being thoroughly engrossed in its human drama, earthy comedy and resonant reflections on the class divide."
'Good People' takes a funny, searing look at the class divide
