In a word: fantastic!
Sort of a cousin to ‘God of Carnage,’ Good People is a dialogue-driven, mostly domestic show that explores what people are willing to do when pressed. It’s consummate David Lindsay-Abaire in that it’s plenty dark, but never without humanity.
And it’s so well done. When I mentioned it to a friend, he said, ‘Do I even need to ask if Frances McDormand was fantastic? And no! There’s no need to ask, but no one in the cast was upstaged by her awesomenity. A fantastic play, a fantastic cast, a fantastic director, and a hell of a team of designers, too–get to this one. Seriously.
