Posted: May 22, 2014 in Uncategorized

 David Lindsay-Abaire’s Boston play, Good People, starring Imelda Staunton had a great intinal run at Hampsted in London.  GOOD PEOPLE transfers into the West End’s Noel Coward Theatre for a strictly limited run. 

In South Boston you’re starting on the wrong side of the tracks, so just making ends meet will require all the energy you can muster. And when sharp-tongued single-mother Margie loses yet another job she’ll do anything it takes to pay the bills. Hearing that an old boyfriend who has made good is in town, she decides to corner him – with unexpected results all round.

David Lindsay-Abaire’s funny and tender drama explores how even if you live on the brink, destiny can have a way of surprising you. D Bo won the Pulitzer Prize for his critically acclaimed Rabbit Hole, which also earned several Tony Award nominations – his film adaptation of Rabbit Hole starred Nicole Kidman.
