In Pulitzer-Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire's funny, edgy contemporary play Good People,
Margie Walsh, single mother of a disabled adult daughter––just fired from her Dollar Store job and facing eviction––looks to an old boyfriend, now married and a father, Dr. Michael Dillon for help. Though Margie and Mike had their beginnings in Southie, lower working-class Boston, Margie remains embedded there while Mike has escaped to the well-to-do Chestnut Hill area. Through Margie's predicament, Abaire explores life as a game of chance like the Bingo that she and her cronies play or do character choices play a role? The URI Honors Colloquium is cosponsoring Good People
in its investigation of "Inequality and the American Dream." Tickets are $20 General; $15 Seniors, URI Faculty/Staff, and Students.
