ABOUT THE SHOW
Good People centers on Margie, a hard-luck single mother living in a shabby South Boston apartment with her disabled adult daughter. So 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, As the play begins, Margie loses her cashier job at the local Dollar Store and quickly finds herself facing eviction by her prickly landlady.
A friend suggests a solution: Margie should get in touch with her old flame Mike, who escaped the neighborhood, married a much younger woman and became a successful doctor. The old friends’ reunion after 30 years unlocks memories and resentments that neither has been able to escape.
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 to find out”.
