Good People


Economic struggles, loyalty to friends and endless hopes of coming out on top in America. Those are the central themes of the play Good People, a 2011 Tony Award nominee for best play.  It recently was presented in St Louis, and now has a debut in Kansas City at the Unicorn Theater.
Good People is the story of a woman’s attempt make something of nothing with her life.  It is funny and heartbreaking and we're joined by director Mark Robbins and actress Jan Rogge to talk their work on Good People.
