What Is the Story of Good People?
Good People centers on Margie, a hard-luck single mother living in a shabby South Boston apartment with her disabled adult daughter. 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.
