With humor and pathos, Good People, explores the struggles, shifting loyalties, and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America. Set in Boston's Southie neighborhood, where a night on the town means a rousing night of bingo, where this month's paycheck barely covers last month's bills, we meet Margaret Walsh. Margaret has lost her job, is facing eviction, and scrambling to catch a break. When she re–acquaints with a friend from the old neighborhood, someone who is now a very successful doctor, she attempts to use their childhood acquaintance as a ticket to turning her life around. Good People is tough and tender and explores the tension of class in America.
