Good People

Good People - Directed by Adrian Rawlins

Thurs 1st - Sat 24th March 7:30pm & 2:30pm

ERT's Artistic Director, Adrian Rawlins, directs David Lindsay-Abaire's award-winning play exploring the hopes and struggles that come with having next to nothing in America.

South Boston, U.S.A, Single mother Margie Walsh is down on her luck. Fired from her job at the dollar store, under threat of being kicked out by her landlady, Margie's only hope seems to be a good win at the Bingo. Hearing that an old flame is back in town, Margie takes her chance to see if he can throw her a lifeline.

As old wounds are opened and buried secrets unearthed, Lindsay-Abaire's fiercely funny and compelling drama is an exploration of class, loyalty and destiny.

Will Margie find the resolve and resourcefulness to pull through? Or is life like a game of Bingo and down to pure luck? And most importantly...who are the GOOD PEOPLE?
