Tenacious, sharp-tongued Margie, played by Bonnie Knapp plans to seek employment from an old flame (Paul Graffy) that managed to get out of South Boston and become a successful doctor. David Lindsay-Abaire, Pulitzer Prize winner for Rabbit Hole, is at his best with this humor filled drama. Good People is a thought provoking play that serves as a snapshot of the great American divide between the haves and have-nots.
Other cast members include Victoria Diebler as Margie’s friend, Jean. Janina Birtolo will play Dottie, Margie’s landlord and caretaker to her handicapped adult child. Sonya McCarter performs as Mike’s onstage wife, Kate and Matthew Striegel plays Stevie, Margie’s boss at the dollar store.
