Announcing the cast of Good People

Director Rich Rand has announced the cast of Good People, the fourth staged reading of the 2013-2014 Staged Reading Series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. David Lindsay-Abaire wrote the script.

The cast includes:

* Margie - Chynna Fry
* Mike - Bill Knapp
* Jean - Michelle Bonora
* Dottie - E. Linda Jeffries
* Kate - Mona Bapat
* Steve - John Collier

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, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

The staged reading of Good People 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. It is a Pay What You Can event.

A question-and-answer session between the cast, director and audience will immediately follow the reading.

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.
