A tough and tender play about the insurmountable class divide – Variety
Amarillo Little Theatre was thrilled to present the 2011 New York Drama Critics Circle award for best play! Good People is an outstanding play that looks at how the smallest twists of fate can determine a life.
When Margie Walsh loses her job at a South Boston dollar store, she reaches out to old flame Mike, a Southie boy who left the neighborhood and became a successful doctor. Margie’s attempt to hit Mike up for a job takes on a threatening cast when she realizes the power a secret from Mike’s past holds. From Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire, Good People looks at the dangerous consequences of choosing to hold on to the past or leaving it behind.
Last year’s leading actor ALTA winner, Brandon Dawson, is thrilled to have been Artistic Director for his first production ever at ALT. Good People featured a talented cast including Patrick Burns, Connie Cannady, Heather Manderson, Treva Oller and newcomers Harrison Blount and Kalilah Robins. Assistant to the Director was Syd Barker.
This incredible modern play begs to answer the moral question — is it strength of character or just a few lucky breaks that determines a person’s fate?
