About Good People
Following a sell-out run at Hampstead Theatre's production of David Lindsay-Abaire's play Good People transfers to the Noёl Coward Theatre for a strictly limited, 10 week season.
Good People transfers with a cast led by Imelda Staunton and Lloyd Owen.
To be born in South Boston is to be born on the wrong side of the tracks, and making ends meet will always be a struggle. Sharp-tongued single mother Margie (Imelda Staunton) will do anything it takes to pay her bill after losing yet another job. So when she hears that an old boyfriend who has made good is in town, she decides to corner him - old loyalties should be good for something.
Lindsay-Abaire's sharp, acerbic and funny play traces the path of a woman's life when a chance encounter with an old flame presents an opportunity to improve the quality of her existence but ends in comedic disaster. Originally premiered on Broadway, Good People won the New York Drama Desk Critic’s Circle Award for Best Play of the year. David won the Pulitzer Prize for his critically acclaimed Rabbit Hole, which also earned several Tony Award nominations, and became a film starring Nicole Kidman.
