The Staged Reading Series: Good People on Jan. 21


The fourth staged reading of the 2013-2014 Staged Reading Series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is Good People by David Lindsay-Abaire.

Rich Rand directs the cast, which includes Chynna Fry, Bill Knapp, Mona Bapat, Michelle Bonora, E. Linda Jeffries and 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 unshakable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

The staged reading of Good People will be Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street - on the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette. It is a Pay What You Can event; general admission tickets are available the night of the staged reading.

There will be a question-and-answer session between the audience, the director and the cast immediately following.

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.
