Dig Deeper - A Play for Our Time

Good People opens this Friday, March 20th at Lyric Arts and we're in good company.  The world premiere was staged by the Manhattan Theatre Club in New York City and was nominated for two 2011 Tony Awards – Best Play and Best Leading Actress in a Play (Frances McDormand), with the latter winning.  It was almost immediately picked up by theaters such as The Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles, Houston’s Alley Theatre, Madison’s Forward Theater and the Milwaukee Repertory Theater.

With 27 professional productions across the country in one year, Good People was named by American Theater Magazine as the Most Produced Play in the U.S. for the 2012-2013 season.  It was also quickly produced internationally at The English Theatre Frankfurt in Germany (2013) and, after playing at the Hampstead Theatre in London, transferred to the West End’s Noël Coward Theatre just last April.  Check out this insightful comedy of class and culture, a timely tale from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, David Lindsay-Abaire.
