Saw this show recently. It was very well cast, with an interesting story. It moves a long fast, so you don't get bored. They do an amazing job with the set as well. Definitely worth seeing!

"Good People" is a fantastic production! The acting, costumes, the set and the direction could not have been better. You can not ask for more in a play!
