"A lyrical and understanding chronicler of people who somehow become displaced within their own lives....
Mr. Lindsay-Abaire has shown a special affinity for female characters suddenly forced to re-evaluate the roles by which they define themselves."—<i>The New York Times</i>
With his latest play <i>Good People</i>, David Lindsay-Abaire returns to Manhattan Theatre Club where four of his previous works were produced, including his 2007 Pulitzer Prize-winning <i>Rabbit Hole</i>.
The play premiered there in winter 2011 in a production directed by Daniel Sullivan (who also directed <i>Rabbit Hole</i>), and featuring Frances McDormand in the role of protagonist Margie Walsh.
<i>Good People</i> is set in South Boston, the blue-collar neighborhood where Lindsay-Abaire himself grew up: Margie Walsh, let go from yet another job and facing eviction, decides to appeal to an old flame who has made good and left his Southie past behind.
Lindsay-Abaire offers us both his "quiet three-dimensional depth" (<i>Los Angeles Times</i>) and his carefully observed humor in this exploration of life in America when you're on your last dollar.
<b>David Lindsay-Abaire</b> is the author of <i>Fuddy Meers</i>, <i>Kimberly Akimbo</i>, <i>A Devil Inside</i>, <i>Wonder of the World</i>, and <i>Rabbit Hole</i>, in addition to the book for the musicals <i>High Fidelity</i> and <i>Shrek</i>.
His plays have been produced throughout the United States and around the world.
