Bozeman Actors Theatre presented a staged reading of David Lindsay-Abaire’s Good People on July 17 and 18, 2016, at the Verge Theater.
Winner of the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play of the 2011 Season, Good People blends incisively drawn characters, humor, and deeply relatable issues of income inequality and racism. Set in blue collar “Southie” Boston, the play tells the story of Margie Walsh, a single mom living paycheck to paycheck, and her long-lost flame who’s worked his way out of the neighborhood. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties, and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.
Our wonderful cast members for this production were Ben Anderson, Rayna Cozzens, Kari Doll, Daniel Erickson, Dee Dee Van Zyl, and Cara Wilder, with additional lines by Carson Taylor and James Burroughs.
