Tickets are on sale for OutCast Productions’ show “Good People” by David Lindsay-Abaire. The show runs through May 24 at the Black Box Theater at the Whidbey Island Fairgrounds in Langley.
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.
The show is directed by K. Sandy O’Brien. The cast includes Marta Mulholland, Maureen Masterson, Allenda Jenkins, Tim O’Brien, Lars Larson and Patricia Duff. Other collaborators from the OutCast team include Jeff Fisher, Alex Wren, Doug Kolb, Hollie Swanson, Jim Carroll, Kathie Townsend Marlene Nakamura, Katie Woodzick, and Ned Farley.
The show plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturdays May 9 to 24; at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 22; and at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 18.
