Carol Hickey Acting Studio presents GOOD PEOPLE

He pays his respects to his old South Boston neighborhood and the insurmountable class divide between those who make it out of this blue-collar neighborhood and those who find themselves left behind. Good People has been hailed as enthralling, utterly gripping, remarkable" by the Los Angeles Times, "painfully funny and gut wrenchingly real" by Washingtonian Magazine and "masterful and oh-so-compelling" by The Boston Globe.
