See Imelda Staunton lead a revival of this darkly comic play with Good People tickets
Following a sell-out run at Hampstead Theatre, David Lindsay-Abaire’s darkly comic Good People transfers to the Noël Coward Theatre for a limited 10 week run. Originating in New York, Good People had a very successful run on Broadway, securing itself a Tony Award.
The show focuses on the down trodden character of Margie, a single mother from the wrong side of the tracks who struggles to make ends meet. After getting fired in a back alley from her job at a dollar store, she seeks the help of her friends who suggests she visits well to do childhood sweetheart, Mike, who has risen up from the South Boston gutter in which he was born to become a city Doctor.
David Lindsay-Abaire’s funny, tender and provocative drama explores the differences between the classes; life on the breadline and a life of cheese and wine. Notions of nature vs nurture and luck vs fate are debated in the two hour play.
The show stars Olivier and Tony award winning actress, Imelda Staunton, as Margie and is directed by Jonathan Kent. Other cast members include Susan Brown and Lorraine Ashbourne, Lloyd Owen and Angel Coulby.
Good People is not aimed at younger audiences. The show contains themes of an adult content as well as some mild curse words.
