Redwood Curtain Revisits Good People This Sunday

Redwood Curtain Theatre continues its live Zoom performances of prior plays with one of its best reviewed and most memorable productions, David Lindsay-Abaire’s Good People, this Sunday, June 20 at 6 p.m. ($5 donation per guest).

Originally performed in 2017 at Redwood Curtain Theatre, Good People — nominated for the 2011 Tony award for Best Play and Best Leading Actress in a Play (with Frances McDormand winning the latter) — is a play about a South Boston neigborhood and who got out and who didn't; the implications of what that means and the moral dilemas the characters face because of it. For this one-night-only performance, director Cassandra Hesseltine returns to lead the original cast: Redwood Curtain co-founder Peggy Metzger in the role of Margie Walsh, Redwood Curtain veterans Craig Benson, Pamela Long and Susan Abbey  — with Kenya Uhuru and Matthew Atkins rounding out the highly skilled cast.

If you're curious how live theater translates in the Zoom format, you'll likely be surprised. Staged Zoom readings can be more immersive and engaging than one might think. The intimate setting allows for deeper digestion of dialogue which might otherwise be diminshed by the multi-sensory impact of the larger set, props and in-person ambience of a theater. And with a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright's words and a cast like this, this is a must-see Zoom theater experience.

For more on the play, read the Journal's review of the original Redwood Curtain production here.

To register for the Zoom link for Sunday's performance, visit www.redwoodcurtain.com. Please be advised Good People contains strong language.
