The 2013-2014 Staged Reading Series: Good People

The fourth performance in the 2013-2014 Staged Reading Series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette will be Good People by David Lindsay-Abaire.

It will be Tuesday, January 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre at 320 N. 5th Street - the corner of 5th Street and North Street - in downtown Lafayette.

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month's paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where 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, David Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

Staged readings are Pay What You Can events. Tickets are available the night of the reading at the box office, and a question-and-answer session between the director, actors and audience immediately follows each performance.

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
