Good People by David Lindsay-Abaire
2 September 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
The Adelaide Repertory Theatre’s third production of 2021 is the South Australian première of the Broadway hit play Good People by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire. Running for a limited season, this “poignant, brave and subversive” (New York Post) new play will be directed by Nick Fagan, a prominent Adelaide director, and actor, having recently directed the award-winning play ‘Jerusalem’ (by Jez Butterworth) and the critically acclaimed ‘Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo’ (by Rajiv Joseph).
Margie has spent her whole life in South Boston and most of it down on her luck, but she has never had it this bad. A middle-aged single other with a disabled adult daughter at her home, she is unemployed, facing eviction, and cut off from opportunity in her insular working-class neighborhood.
When Margie discovers that a brief high school flame is now a successful doctor, she swallows her pride and seeks his help, sparking questions about class, commitment, and what it means to be a ‘good person’. “From the time I first read ‘Good People’ I fell in love with it. David Lindsay-Abaire is a masterful playwright who has given us a beautifully written gift which is hilarious, soul-stirring and full of heart.” – Nick Fagan, Director
Cast: Rachel Burfield, Nicholas Bishop, Cate Rogers, Lyn Crowther, Rhoda Sylvester, and Curtis Shipley
