Steppenwolf Theatre opens 2012/13 season with Good People
Jul 18, 2012

Steppenwolf TheatreSteppenwolf Theatre opens the 2012/13 season with Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire's Good People, directed by ensemble member K. Todd Freeman in Steppenwolf's Downstairs Theatre (1650 N Halsted St). Good People features ensemble members Alana Arenas, Mariann Mayberry and Molly Regan with Will Allen, Keith Kupferer and Lusia Strus.

When Margie Walsh loses her job at a South Boston dollar store, she reaches out to old flame Mike, a Southie boy who left the neighborhood and became a successful doctor. Margie's attempt to hit Mike up for a job takes on a threatening cast when she realizes the power a secret from Mike's past holds. From Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire, Good People looks at the dangerous consequences of choosing to hold on to the past or leaving it behind.

Good People was produced on Broadway in 2011 and marks David Lindsay-Abaire's debut at Steppenwolf Theatre Company. K. Todd Freeman, best known as an actor, has been a member of the Steppenwolf ensemble since 1993. His recent Steppenwolf acting credits include The Brother/Sister Plays, The Tempest and Art.

Steppenwolf's 2012/13 season, The Reckoning, explores the moment when we are called to account. Will our deeds be repaid? Will our secrets be revealed? Will we get what we deserve? Good People is one of five stories about what happens when the past comes knocking.

The production team for Good People includes: Walt Spangler (scenic design), Nan Cibula-Jenkins (costume design), Kevin Rigdon (lighting design), and Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (sound design). Additional credits include: Erica Daniels (casting), Christine D. Freeburg (stage manager) and Michelle Medvin (assistant stage manager)
