Good People

Keegan's 25th Anniversary Season Opener
GOOD PEOPLE by David Lindsay-Abaire
August 28 - September 25, 2021
Playwright
David Lindsay-Abaire

With wry humour and astonishing realism, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire creates both a loving portrait of his hometown and a widely relatable tale of socio-economic struggle. In the world of Good People, we see that very few can afford to be as good as they think they are, but acts of sacrifice and gestures of kindness come at the most surprising moments and from the most unexpected of sources.
