The New York Post hails this play, set in an old South Boston neighborhood, as “poignant, brave and almost subversive in its focus on what it really means to be down on your luck.” Good People garnered the 2011 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award and 2011 Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Frances McDormand’s portrayal of Margie.

“… David Lindsay-Abaire’s superb examination of class and self-preservation, shows us life on the verge of economic ruin. And in Buffalo Theatre Ensemble’s swift, solid revival of this ever-relevant 2011 play, director Connie Canaday Howard makes certain we don’t forget what that looks like.” –Barbara Vitello, Daily Herald
