"Good people" is a comedy of "class" and "culture" playing through May 27th at the Open Book theater in Trenton. How much of our life is determined by our fate, our luck, and our strength of character?  The comedy by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, examines this question and more.

Here's what open says about the show that opened May 12th.

The show includes a cast of characters from Southie, a neighborhood of Boston.  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.

Tickets for all remaining performances are $20, or $15 for students and seniors.  Group discounts are available for groups of 10 or more, at a discount of $3 off each ticket.
