  • New York Drama Critics’ Award for Best Play

A penetrating drama laced with the signature humour of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Rabbit Hole.

Set in Boston’s Southie neighbourhood, where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month's paycheck covers last month's bills, we meet Margaret Walsh, who is facing eviction and is scrambling to catch a break. When a friend from the old neighbourhood, who is now very successful, moves back to town, Margaret hopes he may be the ticket to turning her life around.

Raising difficult questions with unsentimental observation and appealingly scrappy characters, Good People explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing.

Press Quotes

'Poignant, brave and almost subversive in its focus on what it really means to be down on your luck'

New York Post

'As tough as it is tender, and shot through with aching authenticity, Good People is that rare play that is timeless and keyed into a specific moment of American life, without the need to grasp for topicality'

Hollywood Reporter

'The most substantial new play since August: Osage County... It has a quality rarely seen on Broadway - it seems necessary'
