"Good People," a tough and tender new play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire
, launches the Hampton Theatre Company's 28th season October 25 - November 11. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the show below.
Morgan Vaughan plays Margaret, a single mother from South Boston struggling to survive after losing her minimum wage job—a role originated on Broadway last year by Frances McDormand. Joe Pallister, seen most recently on the HTC stage as Randle P. McMurphy in ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST, plays Margie's erst while boyfriend turned successful doctor, Mikey Dillon.
Nehassaiu deGannes, who appeared across from Alec Baldwin in Guild Hall's production of "Equus," plays Mike's wife Kate. HTC Artistic Director Diana Marbury, last seen on stage as the psychic Helga ten Dorp in last season's "Deathtrap," plays Margie's landlady Dottie. Linda May brings a string of Long Island credits to her HTC debut as Margie's friend Jean; Brennan Vickery plays Margie's young boss at the Dollar Store.
"Good People" will be presented on Thursdays at 7, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 and Sundays at 2:30. Ticket prices are $25 for adults, $23 for seniors (except Saturdays) and $10 for students under 21.
