“Enthralling, utterly gripping, remarkable” – Los Angeles Times
“Poignant, brave and subversive.” – New York Post
Margie has spent her whole life in South Boston and most of it down on her luck. But she's never had it this bad. A middle-aged single mother with a handicapped adult daughter at home, she is unemployed, facing eviction and cut off from opportunity in her insular working-class neighborhood. Or is she? When Margie discovers that a brief high school flame is now a successful doctor, she must decide whether or not to swallow her pride and seek his help – the help of this lace-curtain Irish who appears to have forgotten where he came from. Written by the Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist of Rabbit Hole, this huge Broadway and nationwide hit is finally coming to the Bay Area.
2011 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award | Nominated for 2011 Tony Award for best play
