TRENTON—How much of our life is determined by our fate, our luck, and our strength of character?  Good People, a comedy by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, examines this question and more at Open Book Theatre Company from May 12 through May 27.

In Southie, a neighborhood of Boston, 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.

This Open Book production features six accomplished Metro Detroit professional actors: Jan Cartwright as Jean, K Edmonds as Kate, Margaret Gilkes as Dottie, Bradley Michael as Stevie, Linda Rabin Hammell as Margie, and Robert Schorr as Mike. The show is directed by Angie Kane Ferrante with lights by Wilde award winning designer Harley Miah.  Danielle Gilbert is stage managing.
