Synopsis of 1000 MILES:
A young woman, Solis, makes it to The City from 1000 Miles Across the Sea, in search of opportunity and family. She is about to be sent back home by The City’s newly set immigration/refugee laws, when she finds work at a clock shop. The clock shop’s owner, Peter, is the hipster son of immigrants (older wave of immigrants). He is both cautious and compassionate toward Solis, who he takes in and helps. But, Peter and his brother, Mark, hold secrets about their past, their parents, and The City’s history that could very well affect the lives of everyone around them, including Solis, and the very fabric of their “homeland.” At its center — this play is about immigration, surveillance, and power — who has it, who doesn’t.

Playhouse Black Box Series
GOOD PEOPLE by David Lindsay-Abaire
Directed by Daniel Eilola
When: March 14th and 15th at 7pm
Where: Stonzek Studio Theatre at the Lake Worth Playhouse
What to prepare: One-minute contemporary monologue (be prepared to read from the script)
Production Dates: April 27th – May 7th 2017
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.
Margie: Female, 40 – 50
a woman from a blue-collar family in South Boston. She is poorly educated and debt strapped, with a disabled kid at home. She is filled with resentment, fear and need. She is searching for a way out of her situation when she remembers someone from her past who has made good. She attempts to reconnect with him, but he has long since left the world that she is still in.
Stevie: Male, 25-35
Margie’s boss at the Dollar store, and still maintains their friendship after he fires her. He is a nice guy who is often made fun of by colleagues.
Dottie: Female, 65-75
Margie’s landlady who also takes care of Margie’s child who has a disability. Dottie is patient with Margie and her constant financial woes but only to a point. Dottie is not in a position to be giving away free housing and does need to get paid at the end of the day
Jean: Female, 40-50
a loyal friend to Margie, there when she needs her. She has a comic edge to her and uses that humor to make tough situations feel better.
Mike: Male, 40-50
grew up in the same neighborhood as Margie, but has gone beyond the blue-collar lifestyle he grew up in. He is now a doctor living with his wife (Kate) who is nothing like the women of Southie. He is clinging on to his new life just waiting for the inner-Southie in him to come in and destroy what he has created for himself.
Kate: Female, 25-35
the opposite of the other characters in so many ways. She is a kind, well educated, has manners and grew up privileged. She is a college professor and although she can be pushed a little bit she will fight if you push her too hard. She is married to Mike.
Ethnicity: African American
