The season of Broadway hits continues as the Maltz Jupiter Theater stages David Lindsay-Abaire’s Tony Award-nominated play Good People, February 12-26. Good People explores the American working-class experience, examining our choices and how they shape our lives. The play shines a light on our everyday struggles and hopes.
With dynamic characters, hard-hitting truths, witty dialogue, and healthy doses of humor and charm, Good People follows lifelong South Boston resident Margie Walsh, a hardworking single mother who finds herself unemployed with bills piling up. When her high school flame—now a successful doctor—throws a party for his affluent friends, Margie decides to crash it in search of work. What ensues is a confrontation about choices and their consequences.

As a director, Dixon has helmed the premiere or development productions of Hart Island, Ferguson, Modern, A Proper Place, Barnstormer, Gun & Powder, Take Me America, Great Wall, Hansel & Gretl & Heidi & Gunter, and the first full production of Kirtsen Child’s Funked Up Fairy Tales.
