Meet some ‘Good People’

See play, talk about its themes at the Liberty Theatre


By EXPRESS STAFF

    If you haven’t already met the “Good People” appearing via the Company of Fools at the Liberty Theater in Hailey, consider getting tickets for the play on Sunday, Feb. 23, when the show will include a special post-show chat about the themes in the compelling and relevant story.
    Nominated for a 2011 Tony Award for Best Play, “Good People” takes an affectionate look at the “haves” and “have-nots” through the eyes of characters who won’t be ignored. The original stage presentation of “Good People” premiered at the Manhattan Theatre Club in New York City in 2011. After opening on Broadway later in 2011, “Good People” won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play.
    The story, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, is directed by Danielle Kennedy. The cast includes local favorites Jana Arnold, Denise Simone, Joel Vilinsky and Patsy Wygle, as well as guest actors Chris Carwithen and Nylda Mark. The supporting cast includes Joe Lavigne (set design), Steven Koehler (light design), Ann Price (dialect coach) and K.O. Ogilvie (stage manager). 
    Tickets cost $35, $25 for seniors and Center members, and $10 for students (18 and under). They can be purchased online at www.companyoffools.org, by phone at 578-9122, or through the Liberty Theatre box office, at 110 N. Main St. in Hailey.
    The show continues through March 1.
    On Feb. 23, after the 3 p.m. show, join in a discussion with Father Ken Brannon, The Rev. John Moreland and the cast of “Good People” to discuss what it means to be a good person, how the past affects choices in the present and what role hope plays in situations under duress.
