Cleveland Play House Opens GOOD PEOPLE, 3/22
Cleveland Play House will produce the hit Broadway comedy Good People, written by one of the most important new American Playwrights. Nominated for a 2011 Tony Award for Best Play, Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire's Good People takes an affectionate look at the 'haves' and 'have-nots' through the eyes of characters who won't be ignored. Actress Kate Hodge returns to the CPH stage (Dinner with Friends, Bright Ideas) to play the tough-talking, blue-collar Margie Walsh, a role that won Frances McDormand a 2011 Tony Award for Best Actress. Also returning to the CPH stage to play Dottie, Margie's landlord, is actress Denny Dillon (Well), a Cleveland native and former CPH Curtain Puller. Directed by Laura Kepley, CPH Associate Artistic Director,Good People will run in the Allen Theatre at PlayhouseSquare starting Friday, March 22 through Sunday, April 14, 2013. Tickets are available by calling 216-241-6000 or online at www.clevelandplayhouse.com. Good People is produced with support from Cuyahoga Arts and Culture and the Ohio Arts Council.
"Good People is a remarkable piece of writing," says Michael Bloom, CPH Artistic Director. "It is one of the new plays that is redefining the American comedy - not joke machines, with laughs every 30 seconds - but socially engaged, provocative, rooted in the moment, with realistically drawn characters."
