The world premiere of Christina Anderson's Good Goods, featuring Tony Award nominee de’Adre Aziza, officially opens at the Yale Repertory Theatre Feb. 9 after previews that began Feb. 3.
Joining Aziza are Oberon K.A. Adjepong, Kyle Beltran, Clifton Duncan, Marc Damon Johnson and Angela Lewis.
Here's how Yale Rep bills Good Goods: "Amidst the cluttered shelves of a family-owned general store in a small Black town that doesn't appear on any map, four lost souls reunite. Partnerships dissolve, alliances shift, and romances ignite as a tragic accident unleashes the town's mysterious history. Blurring the line between body and spirit, Good Goods is an otherworldly love story of the (dis)possessed."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
