Good People by David Lindsay-Abaire.

Margie is in trouble. A middle-aged single mother of a mentally disabled child, she’s just lost a job that barely allowed her to scrape by. Her hardscrabble neighborhood of South Boston affords few employment opportunities, and even fewer for which she has the skills or strength. Reluctantly, she reaches out to the one person who might possibly help: an old beau who escaped Southie and is now a successful fertility doctor. It soon becomes clear that more than a job is at stake. Their meeting is a conflict in which both fight to hold on to their own views of what was, is, and might have been – and Margie wrestles with how far she will go to get what she wants.

Susan Horowitz directs our cast, which includes Alex Bone, Pat Debrovner, John Gurney, Dan Hanson, Barbyly Noel, Frances Scanlon and Zoe Watkins, with stage directions read by Monica Weiss. Come at 6:30 pm for a reception and after the reading participate in a discussion of the ethical issues of the play, led by Dr. Anne Klaeysen.

Entry to our 100-year-old building and meeting rooms is available for most wheelchair users with prior arrangements. Please call ahead (212-874-5210 x 107) for setup of our portable system and plan to arrive one hour before start time.
