You can't keep a good woman down - unless that woman is from Southie, the gritty, blue-collar Boston neighborhood that Margie Walsh has always called home. Down on her luck and facing eviction, Margie turns to Mikey, an old fling who made good and secured himself a new life in the ritzy suburbs. But is he strong enough to face his humble beginnings and give Margie a hand? Laughter is never far from heartache in this poignant look at the "haves" and "have-nots".
The original stage presentation of Good People premiered at the Manhattan Theatre Club in New York City. After opening on Broadway in 2011, Good People won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play.
