GOOD PEOPLE final weeks confirmed

After receiving universal critical and audience acclaim, the limited west end run of Jonathan Kent’s production of David Lindsay-Abaire's sharp, acerbic and funny play Good People confirms last performance at the Noёl Coward Theatre to be Saturday 14 June.

Led by Imelda Staunton (Margaret) and Lloyd Owen (Mike), the full cast of Good People at the Noёl Coward Theatre includes Lorraine Ashbourne (Jean), Matthew Barker (Stevie), Susan Brown (Dottie) and Angel Coulby(Kate).
Award-winning Good People, presented in the west end by Old Vic Productions and Hampstead Theatre Productions, had its UK Premiere at the Hampstead Theatre where it sold out its run before transferring to the Noёl Coward Theatre from 10 April.

Margie (Imelda Staunton) is a sharp-tongued single-mother on the edge. Hearing that an old boyfriend who has made good is in town, she decides to corner him but when Margie’s plan brings unexpected consequences for her and the unsuspecting Mike (Lloyd Owen) both must look to the past to re-examine the choices and secrets that brought them back together.

Good People originally premiered on Broadway in 2011 winning the New York Drama Desk Critic’s Circle Award for Best Play of the year. David won the Pulitzer Prize for his critically acclaimed Rabbit Hole, which also earned several Tony Award nominations, and became a film starring Nicole Kidman.

Jonathan Kent made his Hampstead Theatre debut with this production. His numerous directing credits includeSweeney Todd and later this summer Gypsy both at Chichester Festival Theatre, both starring Imelda Staunton. Most recently he directed the Olivier Award nominated production of Private Lives in Chichester and the West End. Between 1990 and 2002 he was joint Artistic Director of the Almeida Theatre, which he founded as a full-time producing theatre.
