Micro-Review #17: Good People

by David Lindsay-Abaire

This play is a fast and nourishing read. It will comfort you if you’re afflicted and make you want to be kinder if you aren’t. The story follows Margie Walsh, a down-and-nearly-out dollar-store worker in South Boston who seeks salvation through an old boyfriend who has escaped the streets and become a doctor. Margie’s attempts to fend off homelessness make for an engrossing, life-affirming story and a superbly intelligent read—and a must-see if Covid ever ends and your local theater decides to produce it.
