Summary

Pulitzer prize winning playwright, David Lindsay Abaire, employs his brilliant humor and understanding of the human condition to take a look at class in America through the lens of his boyhood home, Southie, Boston. Margaret Walsh is a smart, wisecracking, single mom surviving on low pay and hard work. In an attempt to get ahead, she risks pride and reputation and approaches an old boyfriend, now a successful doctor, to help her. Margaret Walsh’s “family” in Southie-Jean, Dottie and Stevie, are funny, endearing, loyal and unforgettable.

‘Good People’ shows funny, heartbreaking life in Southie
September 21, 2014
The cast of Cape Rep perennial performers is outstanding; Melissa Becker is hilarious as the cranky landlady and Elizabeth Liuzzi’s Jean is someone we all have met. Richard Sullivan straddles the dichotomy of his character — Southie boy turned lace curtain Irish — and Terralon Walker rings true as the trophy wife who takes no prisoners. Sam Gilliam’s role as Stevie is small but significant; he is endearing and compelling. As Margie, Vicki Summers is by turns funny, exasperating, heartbreaking and fabulous. Cape Cod Times

Cape Rep’s ‘Good People’ Is Good Theater
September 25, 2014
The first act is hilarious and is a great segue for the poignant second act. The foul-mouthed, eccentric trio fire off the well-written crackerjack dialogue like well-aimed arrows and hit the bull’s eye time after time. Margie is a concoction of emotions, and Vicki Summers masters all of them. She’s tough, she’s vulnerable and a loving parent too… Her cohorts Jean (Elizabeth Liuzzi) and Dottie (Melissa Becker) are hilarious and real… “Good People” is a show worth seeing and a great production. Cape Cod Chronicle

Good People = Good Theater at Cape Rep
September 26, 2014
a hysterical and sometimes heartwrenching evening of theater…Cape Rep Theatre once again proves that just because the summer theatrical season is coming to an end, year-rounders need not fret, because as the days grow shorter the quality of local theater still shines bright. Barnstable Patriot

Cape Cod theater: ‘Good People’ at Cape Rep
September 27, 2014
Vicki Summers turns in a riveting performance as Margaret Walsh…Elizabeth Liuzzi is hilarious as Margaret’s outspoken friend, Jean, and Melissa Becker is equally funny as Dottie, Margaret’s grumpy landlady…Richard Sullivan gives a polished performance as Mike…Terralon Walker is perfect as Mike’s elegant wife, Kate…but it is Sam Gillam’s authentic portrayal of Stevie, the Bingo-playing local boy that best expresses the heart of Southie… Cape Codder
