April 20, 2017
Kentwood Players proudly presents GOOD PEOPLE, a dramedy by David Lindsay-Abaire, opening Friday, May 12 through Saturday, June 17 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm at the Westchester Playhouse, 8301 Hindry Avenue in Westchester. There will be a complimentary pre-show champagne and dessert reception between 7 pm and 7:30 for season subscribers and their guests attending the Saturday, May 13 performance. The production is directed by Gail Bernardi and produced by Susan Goldman Weisbarth for Kentwood Players with rights secured from Dramatists Play Service, Inc. Featured in the cast in alphabetical order are Margie Bates, Allison Reeves, Scot Renfro, Melodie S. Rivers, Beau Smith, Susan Stangl. GOOD PEOPLE centers on life in South Boston, a working-class neighborhood on hard times, which is no joke for single mother Margaret Walsh. Fired from her job, facing eviction and with nowhere to turn she and her grown, disabled daughter represent a large portion of today's society. Will she get a break from her young manager at the Dollar Store or the landlady with a craft business selling googly-eyed rabbits, or the man from her past, now a successful doctor, who left town at a crucial moment long ago? With cutting humor and amazing realism, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsey-Abaire creates a loving portrait of his hometown and a relatable story of socioeconomic struggle. In the world of GOOD PEOPLE, acts of sacrifice and gestures of kindness come at the most surprising moments and from the most unexpected sources.Reserved seat tickets are $20 with a $2 discount for seniors and students.
