Margie Walsh canít catch a break. Laid off from her job at the dollar store, Margie is faced with the reality that South Boston is providing her the same level of opportunity it always has: none. Wry, rough around the edges and ready to make a change, she goes to seek out the one who got away Ė both from ďSouthieĒ and from her. Instead, she finds herself in the burbs and out of her element, facing the question Ė is opportunity granted or earned? Nominated for a 2011 Tony Award for Best Play, Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire's Good People takes an affectionate look at the Ďhavesí and Ďhave notsí through the eyes of characters who won't be ignored.
