CRT to open 'Good People'
Clackamas Repertory Theatre presents Good People by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, opening Sept. 19, in the Osterman Theatre at Clackamas Community College. The Clackamas Rep production marks the Portland premiere of the 2011, Tony Award-nominated comedy.
Directed by David Smith-English, the show stars award-winning Portland actress Lorraine Bahr as Margie Walsh.
The action takes place in the notorious South Boston neighborhood where Margie lives, taking care of her disabled daughter, working for minimum wage and playing bingo. When she loses her job, she visits an old high school flame, who she claims owes her a good deed. Things get ugly and funny when she invades his home to see if he is still Good People.
The play features Clackamas Rep regular Doren Elias as Mikey, the old flame; newcomer Damaris Webb as his beautiful and much younger wife; and Amanda Valley and Cyndy Smith-English as the nosy, manipulating bingo pals.
The play runs through Oct. 5. Performances take place Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. All performances are in the Osterman Theatre Niemeyer Center at CCC, 19600 Molalla Ave., in Oregon City. Tickets may be purchased by calling 503-594-6047 or at clackamasrep.org. The low-price preview is Sept. 18. Regular tickets are $12 to $28.
