Auditions Announced for GOOD PEOPLE at Fairfield Footlighters

fflWritten by Pulitzer-prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire, this tough and tender play looks at the class divide between the haves and the have-nots:

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

Directed by Darren Lee
Produced by Kevin Noll

  • DOTTIE: white, female, stage age 55-65, Margie’s landlady and babysitter to Margie’s daughter when Margie is at work. There is a certain amount of animosity between Dottie and Margie but their situation and backgrounds tie them together and give them at least a tenuous sort of friendship.
  • JEAN: white, female, stage age 40-50, Margie’s best friend, she has the nickname “Mouthie of Southie” for her tendency to say exactly what’s on her mind.
  • MIKE: white, male, stage age 40-50, grew up with Margie and Jean but left South Boston to go to school and eventually became a successful doctor. He now lives in a much more affluent section of Boston with his wife and daughter.

Character Descriptions: SOME ROLES MAY BE CAST AS EITHER GENDER

  • Thomas Rogers (30s – 50s) He is a competent, middle aged manservant, not a butler but a house parlor man. He is quick and deft and just a trifle specious and shifty. “A tall lanky man, grey-haired and very respectable.” He and his wife are hired to handle housekeeping and cooking for the guests on Soldier Island. To the guests he appears dignified and dutiful but when their backs are turned he is shady and disrespectful.
  • Ethel Rogers (30s – 50s) Thomas’ wife, she is a worried, frightened looking woman. “She is pale and ghostlike with a flat, monotonous voice. Very respectable looking with her hair dragged back from her face. She had queer, light eyes that shift the whole time from place to place. Frightened of her own shadow she looked like a woman who walked in mortal fear.” She is also a bit of a gossip.
  • Vera Claythorne (20s) She is a school teacher who comes to the island to act as a secretary for the mysterious owners. “Nice looking, very young lady but the ordinary kind, not glamorous, no Hollywood touch about her.” She is practical and careful but also a romantic. She and Lombard are attracted to one another.
  • Phillip Lombard (25 – 30s) He is attractive, lean, well-tanned with a touch of adventurer about him. He is very taken with Vera. With a pleasant, easy voice he is resourceful and creative, always cracking jokes and used to be a soldier in Africa. He is hired to watch out for any trouble that may occur on Soldier Island. “Moves like a panther, smoothly and noiselessly.”
  • Anthony Marston (20s) A creature of sensation and of action he is a rich, athletic, and handsome youth. He likes to drive recklessly and seems to lack a conscience. He shows no remorse for his actions.
  • Emily Brent (40s – 80s) She is a bible thumping, self-righteous old biddy who so badly shamed a young, unwed pregnant girl in her employ that she took her own life. A sour old maid who never consciously feels any remorse. “She is enveloped in an aura of righteousness and unyielding principles.”
  • Sir Lawrence Wargrave (50s – 70s) Lately retired from the bench he is obsessed with justice and with death. He is a hanging judge and speaks in acid tones. When the guests realize they are being hunted and killed they turn to him because of his air of authority and leadership skill. “Frog like face, hunched up attitude, pale shrewd little eyes that always looked half asleep.”
  • Dr. Armstrong (40s – 50s) A successful doctor who comes to Soldier Island because he is told the owner, Ms. Owen, is sick. He is a recovering alcoholic who accidentally killed a patient during surgery as he had had too much to drink. He is preoccupied with maintaining his reputation and success. He is also very gullible, slightly timid and has a weak personality.
  • William Blore (40s – 60s) An ex-police inspector who is hired to come to the island under false pretenses. He is practical and careful but has very little imagination. Well built, his experience inspires others to look to him for advice. He is loud and bold and frequently takes initiative but also makes frequent blunders. His attempts at blending in with the more refined guests makes for a comedic effect (think Detective Colombo).
  • General Mackenzie (60s – 80s) A general in WWI he is the oldest guest on the island. Still proud but losing his grip on reality. Upright soldierly man with a tired face. Very gentle and kind. He sent a soldier on a very dangerous mission who subsequently was killed because he found out he was having an affair with his wife. Make this character your own, Ms. Christie gives very little in the way of his description.
  • Fred Narracott (20s – 70s) A boatman who brings supplies and guests to Soldier Island. He appears onstage at the beginning of the play and is referred to throughout.
