THE FREE READERS ENSEMBLE Presents: Good People by David Lindsay-Abarie  Director: Ray Cunha

Sunday, January 19 from 3 - 5pm
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.

This local actor-based ensemble is in its 26th year showcasing the magic of words; from playwrights and poets to authors and screenwriters. The group brings thought-provoking, entertaining and sometimes controversial works to life. Programs are offered at no charge. Free-will donations are appreciated and help cover costs.
