David Lindsay-Abaire certainly has a way with words. The language in this play could not be more natural in terms of its Southie-specific cadence, construction and content, and it falls on the untrained ear as if we were native speakers. Yet, it’s the director, performers and designers that draw the audience into this intimate world of disappointment and hardship and makes it immediately accessible, painfully funny and very real.

CPH’s GOOD PEOPLE is one of those special evenings of theater that combines a well-written script,  excellent direction, and fine acting into an evening of humor and pathos to create a must-see production.

In a world of an ever-growing schism between the haves and have-nots, this very trenchant, very funny play, hits home.
Laura Kepley's pitch-perfect comic direction and a sublime cast make this production a highlight of the season.

Sometimes a bland title can hide a funny and even gripping show, and such is the case with Good People now at the Cleveland Play House.

GOOD PEOPLE is a hilarious, heart warming and scandalous look at the everyday lives of ‘good people’ and the twisted webs we weave.

Combine the beautifully literate script with performers who become the characters under strong direction, add first-rate design, and you have a production that gives one comfort that the future of theater is secure. "Good People" is about people who are good, with terrible faults in their past and present--a morality story of the "haves" and "have nots" of this decade.
