Former Intiman Theatre artistic director Kate Whoriskey (Broadway's The Miracle Worker) will direct the emotionally tense drama that will officially open Sept. 19 and will run through Oct. 14.
Day (The Realistic Joneses, Proof) is joined by Michael Laurence (Desire Under the Elms) as Margie's high school boyfriend Mike in a cast that also features Nancy E. Carroll (Present Laughter), Karen MacDonald (All My Sons), Rachael Holmes (Ruined) and Nick Westrate (Tribes).
Here's how the Huntington bills the play: "Good People takes place in South Boston where this month's paycheck covers last month's bills and bingo is a night on the town. Sharp-tongued single-mom Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job and is facing eviction. Scrambling to make ends meet for herself and her developmentally disabled adult daughter, she looks up an old flame – now a fertility doctor living in Chestnut Hill with his young wife – hoping he'll help her make a fresh start."
Good People will have scenic design by Alexander Dodge, costume design by Ilona Somogyi, lighting design by Matthew Richards and sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen.
