    Good People, a Play by David Linsday-Abaire

    Carol Hickey Acting Studio presents Good People, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire. Lindsay-Abaire pays his respects to his old South Boston neighborhood and the insurmountable class divide between those who make it out of this blue-collar neighborhood and those who find themselves left behind. Good People has been hailed as "enthralling, utterly gripping, remarkable” by The Los Angeles Times, “painfully funny and gut-wrenchingly real” by Washingtonian Magazine, and “masterful and oh-so-compelling” by The Boston Globe

    This production features the Austin directorial debut of Robert Walden. Walden received three consecutive Emmy nominations for his portrayal of reporter Joe Rossi on Lou Grant. He also starred in Brothers, the first sitcom for cable TV, receiving two Cable Ace nominations for Best Actor. He has appeared in over forty films, including Oscar winner All The President’s Men. Television appearances include Law & Order: SVU, The West Wing, and dozens of TV films. Walden's theatrical career has earned him multiple Dramalogue and Critic’s Circle awards as an actor and director. After six years as an adjunct professor for The New School of Drama’s MFA program in NYC, he played the iconic Willy Loman in the Arkansas Repertory Theatre’s Death of a Salesman. Upon graduating CCNY, he became a lifetime member of The Actors Studio. Now living in Austin, he still coaches, teaches, and consults on films.  

    The cast includes Carol Hickey, Rick Smith, Linda Bradshaw, Cynthia Fray, Nicholaus Weindel, and Nichole Abshire. The play opens May 12th at8pm, and will run for a limited time until June 4th. It will take place in the Carol Hickey Acting Studio’s Mastrogeorge Theater.
