By | Good People | No Comments

Star of GOOD PEOPLE, Rebecca Dines, shares some background on her character, the rehearsal process, and what audiences can expect when GOOD PEOPLE begins performances on September 7th.

GOOD PEOPLE by David Lindsay-Abaire
directed by Stephanie Gularte

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.
